Senior Lecturer and Researcher, Centre for Low Carbon Research
- 0121 331 7547
Christine started teaching at the University in 2008 but before this, she spent most of her career in Higher Education in research, ranging from lean and agile operations in manufacturing whilst at the Universities of Swansea, Cardiff and Bath. Here she was engaged with many different companies including Ford, Johnsons, BAT, Balfour Beatty, Nissan, and Boots.
Christine’s interests emanating from her MPhil in economic development and innovation led to an appointment as a Research Fellow for the Centre for Regional Economic Development at the University of Central Lancashire based in Carlisle.
Again working with businesses Christine helped provide support for a range of funded projects ranging from research into rural diversification post-foot and mouth to local government procurement. When she was appointed at the University of Swansea on an all-Wales sustainability project, she became interested in bioenergy and how this could become a viable business.
Christine’s MSc dissertation on reverse logistics considered recycling methods, generating value from ‘waste’ and how this generates value. This led to her current PhD research in supply chain integration in bioenergy which has subsequently led to her involvement with two Interreg IVB projects in bioenergy within the Centre for Low Carbon Research at the University.
Christine teaches mainly on postgraduate programmes in logistics and supply chain management. I have also taught other PG courses at Cardiff, Bath, Ulster and on the Engineering Diploma at EIGSI, La Rochelle.
