After graduating with a B.A. Joint Honours in Economics and Geography and a dissertation on Exporting Manufactures, I joined the Logistics Industry full time.

In 2003 studying part-time, I completed my MSc in Logistics at Aston University including a thesis on E-Commerce performance modelling.

I have 20 years experience in Logistics and have worked in various senior management roles in multiple geographies, and I am currently employed by FedEx Supply Chain Division EMEA in commercial solutions.

In 2011, I joined as a postgraduate research student (part-time) Mphil/PhD in the Engineering and Applied Science Dept at Aston University.
