Biography

Iain Docherty BSc PhD CMILT is Professor of Public Policy and Governance and Head of Management at the University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School. Iain’s research and teaching addresses the interconnecting issues of public administration, institutional change and city and regional competitiveness, with particular emphasis on the structures and processes of local and regional governance, policies for delivering improved economic performance and environmental sustainability, and the development and implementation of strategic planning and transport policies. His total research and consultancy awards in the last six years exceed £2 million, and he is currently Co-Director of the Scottish Cities Knowledge Centre and Co-Investigator on two major Research Council projects on sustainable transport and low carbon transitions. Iain has worked with and advised a range of private sector, governmental and other organisations including governments and public agencies in the UK, US, Australia, Canada and Sweden, and the OECD. He served as Non-Executive director of Transport Scotland, the national transport agency for Scotland, from 2006 – 2010. Iain was appointed as one of the inaugural members of the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Young Academy of Scotland in 2011, and to the Expert Panel advising the North East Independent Economic Review in 2012.

PhD supervision areas

Professor Iain Docherty is interested in supervising PhD researchers in most aspects of public management and administration. In particular he is interested in the impact of governance and management structures on public policy outcomes, and the efficacy of multi-organisational working.

Iain is also continuing his longstanding work on the development of the transport sector and its links to government policy, and welcomes applications for doctoral research in any related area. He is especially interested in proposals for work relating to the impact of climate change and carbon reduction imperatives on changing policies and management practices.
