Short summary: I am a third-year student, studying Global Sustainable Development. I plan to focus my dissertation on business and sustainability. My degree is based around the UN SDGs, and through taking optional modules with the Business School I have become particularly interested in bridging the divide between corporations and sustainability.In my second year, I submitted two essays on this topic. Through my work experience at EFECA (an environmental consultancy), I was able to further my research skills.

I would also be interested in looking at supply chain management or NFR as part of this process.
