I aspire to create scientific knowledge that inspires and enables organizations to do better for their societies and the natural environment. I am also passionate about supply chains as complex forms of collective organizing. My research and teaching thus focus on how sustainability can be integrated in supply chains and the implications for competitiveness. I have been studying these dynamics in two empirical settings: ESG disclosures in global supply chains and, more recently, emergent circular agri-food systems.

My commitment to impact has led me to take on leadership roles at Ivey’s Building Sustainable Value Centre (BSV) and its sister organization, the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS). BSV shapes pathways of systems change towards a fairer and ecologically sound future through innovative research and impact programming. NBS connects researchers with managers to advance business sustainability. My work has been featured in popular media including Corporate Knights, The Conversation, The Toronto Star, The Financial Post, B the Change, Eco-Vadis, and the Peggy Smedly Show.

During my career, I have received over $400,000 CAD in funding from both industry and research councils for my research and currently collaborate with federal agencies such as Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and innovation platforms like “Circular Opportunity Innovation Launchpad.” My research has been published in premier journals including the Journal of Operations Management and the Journal of Supply Chain Management. I serve on these and other editorial boards.

I have received awards including the Distinguished David G. Burgoyne HBA Teaching Award (2022), Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings (2021), Excellent Service as a Reviewer Award by Journal of Operations Management (2021), Top 20 Most Read Papers by Journal of Supply Chain Management (2019), Two Best Paper Awards by the International Purchasing and Supply Management Association and Research Education (2016 and 2012), the 2015 Best Reviewer Award by the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management, and the Production and Operations Management Runner-up for Best PhD Proposal Award (2012).
