Dr Trautrims is currently leading The Unchained Supply project as part of the University of Nottingham's Rights Lab. His research is focusing on developing knowledge that helps to detect modern slavery in supply chains, to understand how supply chain design impacts the occurrence of modern slavery, and the diffusion of good labour practices. Dr Trautrims' current research on modern slavery in contemporary supply chains is supported by the British Academy and is endorsed by the UK's Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner.
He joined Nottingham University Business School in 2013 from the University of Hull's Logistics Institute where he also accomplished his PhD on in-store logistics execution of European retailers. His PhD was sponsored by a Peter Thompson scholarship from the University of Hull and was awarded a highly commended Outstanding Doctoral Research Award by EFMD and Emerald. Since joining Nottingham University Business School Dr Trautrims' research focus shifted to sourcing and procurement issues in the supply chain.
