Dayna is an Associate Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management. She conducts research with industries and individual firms, on topics primarily around responsible procurement and product reuse, with a focus on environmental or social issues. This includes two main streams of research: a. the role of firms' policies in supplier social and environmental performance, how risks affect procurement decision making, supplier compliance, and supplier management; and b. increasing reuse of returned products, and consumers' emotions around returns and reuse. Her most recent projects include: consumers' emotional responses to product returns; electronic product recycling; and procurement responses to modern slavery risks in supply chains.

Dayna is also a member of the Trafficking and Slavery Research Group (TSRG), a Business School-Arts collaboration for improving corporate responses to modern slavery risks (read more here).
