Mahima Mitra, DPhil, is a Research Fellow at Saïd Business School and Academic Associate at Brasenose College. Her research focuses on micro-organisational behaviour in the public sector.

Timothy Hoff and Sue Dopson are both Fellows of Green Templeton.

Timothy is a Visiting Associate Fellow and Professor of Management, Healthcare Systems and Health Policy in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business and School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University. His research and writing focuses on healthcare system transformation and healthcare innovation.

His recent research includes looking at female physicians’ experiences in the context of the #MeToo movement. As reported by News@Northeastern, Timothy and colleagues have found female physicians are more likely to experience harassment, depression and burnout at work than male colleagues, and more likely to earn significantly less. His latest research will look at the evolution of the careers of physicians, which includes interviewing female physicians to delve deeper into the results of his previous study, which found the women were relatively happy with their jobs despite the challenges they face.

Tim also spoke recently with BYUradio at Sirius XM about the recent push by retailers such as Amazon and Walmart to break into the health clinic business.

Sue is a Governing Body Fellow and the Rhodes Trust Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Deputy Dean of Saïd Business School. Her research centres on leadership and transformational change in the public and healthcare sectors.
