Dr Adina Dudau
- Senior Lecturer (Management)
After quite an unusual series of career shifts (including work in the public, private and voluntary sectors in Romania, Greece and UK), Adina enrolled into full-time academic work in 2005, when she started her PhD. Her doctoral research focused on partnership working in safeguarding children. Upon completion of her PhD, she worked as research associate at the University of Glasgow on the EPSRC project ‘Under dark skies: port cities, extreme events, multi-scale processes and the vulnerability of controls around counter terrorism’. Then, in 2012, she has taken the post of Lecturer in Management which she currently holds.
Adina’s main research interest is in public sector partnerships and draws on a number of theoretical lenses, including risk and crisis management, networks, management control, leadership and new institutionalism. She has published in Public Policy and Administration, Public Management Review and Management Accounting Research.
Adina is a member of the Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour research cluster.
