Karina is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of International Business and Strategy at Henley Business School. She holds an MSc in Management of International Economic Relations (2002) and an MSc in Marketing and International Management (Henley Business School, 2015). Before joining Henley Business School, Karina had several years of managerial experience. In 2019 she completed her doctorate at Henley Business School and continued on afterwards as a member of academic faculty.

Karina’s research interests cover quantitative analysis of consumption behaviour in the historical and cross-national comparative perspectives, evolution of socio-economic thought in consumption, forms of human capital and career fields. Her doctoral thesis “Career, capitals and consumption: an analysis of the impacts of narrowly-defined occupational membership on household consumption, from a human capital and occupational field perspective” explored the patterns of consumption and saving behaviour of agents defined by capital forms. Karina is an approved researcher of the Secure Data Service, Office of National Statistics, UK. Karina’s academic aspiration is in promoting the interdisciplinary dialogue between sociology and economics through rigorous empirical and theoretical work and highlighting implications for business and management.

In 2018 Karina’s research papers have been presented at the conferences of the British Accounting and Finance Association (London) and the European Sociological association (Copenhagen).

Karina is a module convenor for undergraduate Business Statistics, MM1F13. The aim of this module is to introduce students to the basic methods of research and statistical analysis in business. MORE INFORMATION
