Amy is a Lecturer in Fashion Management and teaches on a number of units in the School of Materials relating to production & operations management, fashion management and international business.

She has seven years’ experience working in industry and was most recently a Senior Merchandise Manager based in Istanbul, Turkey at global sourcing company Li & Fung. Her main responsibilities included sourcing and managing production for major UK fashion retailers. Amy returned from Turkey to carry out doctoral research using her strong industry experience.

Amy’s research interests include socially sustainable supply chain management and global sourcing within the textiles and fashion industry, with a particular focus on modern slavery legislation and reshoring – the movement of activities associated with manufacturing back to the country from which they were previously offshored.

I am interested in supervising PhD students in Sustainable Supply Chain Management and global sourcing, with a particular focus on modern slavery legislation and reshoring.
