Biography

After quite a series of career shifts (including civil service, as well as private and voluntary sector roles in Romania, Greece and the UK), Adina entered academia in 2005, when she started her PhD in inter-organisational management, followed by a postdoc in the EPSRC project ‘Under dark skies: port cities, extreme events, multi-scale processes and the vulnerability of controls around counter terrorism’. She became a lecturer in 2012, and is currently senior lecturer in management, Associate Research Director and PGR Director in Adam Smith Business School. On 1 August 2022, Adina joined SGSSS as Associate Director and Led of the Economies, Minds and Technologies Hub.

Adina’s research is highly interdisciplinary and anchored in public management. She draws on several theoretical lenses, including risk and crisis management, complexity theory, positive organisational behaviour and management control. She has published in general management, public management, business education and accounting journals, such as European Management Journal, Public Management Review, Academy of Management Learning and Teaching and Financial Accountability and Management. She is on the board of IRSPM and of the Public and Nonprofit Division of AOM, as well as on the editorial boards of Public Management Review, Public Administration, Public Money & Management, Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting & Financial Management and Asia-Pacific Journal of Public Administration. Adina led on a number of special issues in some these journals and is associate editor for Public Management review and Journal of Management Inquiry.
