My individual and collaborative research activities have emphasised a research focus on long-term inter-organisational relationship management across public and private organisations. Within this agenda, significant strands of research explore: (i) the interplay of contractual and relational governance mechanisms; (ii) procuring and managing complex capital projects such as public-private partnerships; (iii) the dark side of relationships such as conflicts, trust breaches and opportunism; and (iv) sustainable supply chain management. My research is multidisciplinary, drawing theoretical inspiration and methodological support from operations management, economics, strategy, innovation management, healthcare and policy management. The interdisciplinary nature of my research has resulted in publications in not only core operations and supply management journals, but also publications in leading general management, industrial marketing, policy and health management outlets.
I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in my research interest areas.
