Stephen is a Reader in the Logistics and Operations Management Section of Cardiff Business School. He graduated with a BSc Honours degree in Maritime Geography from Cardiff University in 1989 and in 1993 was awarded a PhD from the University of Wales.

Subsequently he has been involved in a range of transport related research including a groundbreaking project for the Department of Transport, studying the UK economy's requirements for people with seafaring experience, which highlighted important issues relating to the decline in the number of UK seafaring officers. He has also been involved in a number of research programmes for EU DGTREN including the 'Economic Value of Shipping to the UK Economy'; an 'Analysis of the Cost Structure of the main TEN Ports'; and 'Work Organisation in Ports'.

More recent work has focused on Humanitarian Aid logistics and Supply Chain Management. An initial project was funded by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport through their Seedcorn Grant scheme and was co-researched with Dr Anthony Beresford. This work has been extended through collaboration with Cranfield University in the Cardiff-Cranfield Humanitarian Logistics Initiative. Stephen has written a large number of journal papers, conference papers and reports primarily on port development, port policy and the logistics of humanitarian aid delivery.
