Research overview

After a successful career in corporate communications, most recently heading the Social Media function at the Tata group (a global company operating in more than 100 countries), I am now undertaking a PhD research at Lancaster University within the Department of Leadership and Management.

My thesis explores the link between performance management systems and processes and ethical attitudes and behaviours in organisations within specific cultural contexts. I use a Bourdieusian theoretical framework to analyse this phenomenon from a sociologically-informed perspective.
