The research Dr Lincoln Wood undertakes follows two themes:

  • Sustainable and consumer-focused outcomes through supply chain practices, with a particular focus on applications in the construction sector. This includes examining a range of sustainable supply chain practices and consideration of ethical and privacy issues when using supply chain technologies.
  • Logistics relationships, dynamics, and the use of technology with a focus on 3PLs and logistics service providers.

Broadly, the articles often fall into either Logistics or Construction Management categories.
