My career as a corporate executive in the IT and Telecommunications industry led me to question ‘business-as-usual’ and seek to understand how business could more effectively address its environmental, social and financial responsibilities. My PhD (2006) in corporate sustainability developed a ‘sustainability business model’ that integrates sustainability into the core business model and my research continues to explore business models that are grounded in the principles of sustainability (environmental, social and economic) and sustainable business practices. My research interestes include industrial ecosystems/symbiosis (where waste streams are recycled as inputs to other processes and organisations in the industrial ecosystem), sustainability reporting, corporate social responsibility and education for sustainability. I coordinate and teach into the Corporate Environmental & Sustainability Management stream in the Master of Sustainability, as well as teaching sustainability in the MBA program. I have an MBA from the Wharton Business School (USA), and a Bachelor of Applied Science from UTS (Australia).
