My research interests are in the areas of corporate social responsibility and environmental management, services/marketing/technology and educational management. Internationally known for my work on CSR, I have published (including in press) 130 papers including 64 refereed journal articles of which 27 are A/A*/Q1 ranked. I have published an edited book on CSR (2015) and numerous book chapters and case studies. Over 76 percent of my papers have been cited and I have near 2000 peer citations of my work including two from the Oxford Handbook of Corporate Social Responsibility. Over 80 percent of my journal articles have impact factors and my cumulative impact factors amount to over 70. I have secured a number of competitive research grant worth over $262,000 to date.
