He recently completed his thesis, “A Multi-Method Exploration of the Role of Legitimacy in Cross-Sector Partnerships for The Natural Environment” at Case Western Reserve University.

With a particular emphasis on environmental practices in supply chains, his objective is to aid the communities of scholarship and practice to achieve joint environmental, social, and economic success.
