Amanda Goodall

I've had a varied working life.   High school ended at 16 and for the next 7 years I worked in the fashion industry in various countries.   At 23 I moved to India, where I lived on a small development project in Andhra Pradesh, followed by a number of years working with charitable and campaigning organizations back in the UK.   In 1997 I completed a degree at the London School of Economics, and then worked with Anthony Giddens, Director of the LSE, as part of the top management team.   After a year in Chicago I returned to work with the President of Warwick University.   Based on my experience working with two university leaders, I started a PhD at Warwick Business School in 2004.   My research was published into a monograph by Princeton University Press - Socrates in the Boardroom: Why Research Universities Should be Led by Top Scholars.

I became an ESRC post-doctoral fellow, a Leverhulme fellow, and was a senior researcher at IZA Institute for the Study of Labor in Bonn.  In 2012, I joined Bayes Business School (formally Cass) in London as a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Faculty of Management. I have held visiting research positions at Cornell University, University of Zurich, and recently Yale. I am married to economist Andrew Oswald and live between England and South Wales, in beautiful Pembrokeshire.  I am a committed environmentalist.

Expert leadership is a Research Excellence Framework Impact Case Study.
