Year of entry: 2019

I’m a PhD Candidate in the Organisational Theory and Information Systems subject group, with my work focusing on organisational change management, in particular culture change, and environmental sustainability. My primary interests are how sustainability can be embedded in organisational cultures and how individual change agents can drive change initiatives within large organisations. Prior to joining the PhD programme, I obtained an MPhil in Innovation, Strategy and Organisation from Cambridge Judge Business School.
