Research interests

I am an early career academic with an interest in collaborative fashion consumption, clothes swapping, circular economy and sustainable consumption. I am particularly fascinated by the potential for scalability of collaborative fashion consumption business models in order to support the transition of the UK fashion industry towards sustainability. I have presented my work at national and international conferences focusing on sustainability in the apparel industry.
