- Senior Lecturer (Management)
I currently work as a Senior Lecturer in Management in Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow. With my background in linguistics, literature and cultural studies I started my career as a tutor in British culture in the University of Łódź, and a tutor in Slavonic culture at the University of Glasgow. My interest in social-cultural theory and research into representations of working-class culture brought me closer to the area organizational sociology, which consequently led to a move to Caledonian Business School where I worked in the Departments of People Management, and Cultural Business. In 2010 I moved to my current post at the University of Glasgow where I teach in the area of change management, organizational behaviour and human resource management, and act as a Convenor of the MSc in Management Professional Pathway programme.
