Andromachi Athanasopoulou's areas of expertise are organisational behaviour, corporate social responsibility and qualitative research methods.
In her doctoral thesis, Andromachi examined through qualitative, case study research how managers in multinational organisations make sense of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Between 2008 and 2011, Andromachi has been involved in several research projects led by GTC Fellow Professor Sue Dopson in the areas of healthcare management, action learning and leadership performance as well as an extensive literature review on executive coaching as input into the Oxford Coaching Community. The work on executive coaching is currently being developed into academic publications. Parallel to her doctoral studies, Andromachi has contributed as a teaching and research assistant for the Oxford Scenarios Programme led by Professor Rafael Ramirez, and the 2005 Oxford Futures Forum at Green Templeton College.
Andromachi has an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Athens University of Economics and Business and an MBA, MSc in Management Research and DPhil in Management Studies from Saïd Business School.

Karenjit Clare is an economic geographer concerned with the connections between globalisation, labour, work and gender/class divisions within the contemporary labour market.
Her research investigates creative labour in the 'cultural economy' and specifically, in the contemporary UK advertising industry by drawing upon the theoretical writing of a diverse range of authors, including Pierre Bourdieu and Max Weber.
Her focus is how workers calculate, navigate and make sense of the labour market in which they are immersed and on the relationship between project forms of organisation and 'new' and 'old' forms of insecurity, risk, inequality and exploitation in this sector, and the ways these are embedded in social networks and place.
Karenjit's work combines insights from sociology, economic geography, socio-cultural anthropology and organisational behaviour in order to illuminate how micro-level processes of interpersonal evaluation and interaction contribute to macro-level labour market inequalities.
Before joining Green Templeton College, Karenjit held a temporary lectureship in the Department of Geography, University of Cambridge, where she also received her PhD.
DPhil (Oxon), MSc (Oxon), BSc (Ritsumeikan Asia-Pacific University)
A sociologist by training, Tuukka's current research explores youth, work, and motivation in the context of 'post-materialist' societies.
One of Tuukka's main missions while at GTC is to shed light on the changing 'whys of work' through an inventive study of social entrepreneurs and other types of young workers in Japan and China. To engage with the relevant debates on a global level, in March 2011 Tuukka collaborated with his JRF colleague Karenjit Clare to convene an international workshop on 'Youth, Early Careers & Motivation', making an important contribution to GTC's exciting Future of Work agenda.
Tuukka plans to publish two books this year, one of which carries the provisional title Making Young Adults Independent: Japan's Emerging Youth Policy in Comparative Perspective.
