Research interests

Graham is an Associate Editor: International Journal of Operations and Production Management ABS 4* - IMPACT PATHWAYS SECTION. 

In 2013, Graham was awarded an EPSRC Digital Economy funded scholarship to work with Prof Chris Caplice and colleagues at the Centre for Transport and Logistics at the Massachussets Institute for Technology in Boston on future freight modelling in the US. Whilst in 2017 he was a visiting researcher at the Centre for International Business and worked with Dr Jag Srai on a project entitled: redistributed manufacturing as a new form of local production system.  

My doctoral thesis (1991-1995) deployed ethnographic and anthropological methods to research procurement strategy as it evolved in response to changing Ministry of Defnce Policy. It was completed with five major UK defence suppliers in Aerospace and Electronics and industrially sponsored by the Defence Manufacturers Association. 

Graham is currently working on a YHAHSN and NHS supported project investigating the impact of misinformation on public behaviour with respect to COVID-19. They are building an NLP algorithm to detect and counter the influence of social network behaviour, social media patterns and improve how the NHS deals with misinformation and its affects on its public communication camapaigns. 

Graham is currently working on an ESRC project investigating the impact of Brexit and automation on supply chain labour shortages and the skills requirements for warehousing and logistics workers in the UK. This is in collaboration with the UK Warehousing Association. 

Graham is currently working with the North East Automotive Alliance on the electrrification of the auto industry supply chain and the supporting infrastructural role played by Sunderland Council and the local LEP.
