Before joining Birmingham City University, she was working as researcher at Cambridge University (the REMEDIES-RE-configuring MEDIcines End-to-end Supply project) and at Aston University (DISCUS: Drivetrain Integration, Supply Chain Upscaling and Streamlining) and (Next-net: Next Generation Technologies for Networked Europe project) that gave her the experience of working on different research projects using many different research methods and her research work appeared in top peer-journals and respectable conferences. She is looking forward to get involved in new research projects and / or develop new ones.
