  • Lecturer
  • UCL School of Management
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Mihaela is Assistant Professor of Strategy at the UCL School of Management and her current research focuses on the links between formal structures, organizational learning, and adaptation. More broadly, she is interested in understanding how attributes of the organizational context shape learning outcomes, with an emphasis on the healthcare sector. Prior to joining UCL, Mihaela pursued a Ph.D. in Strategic and International Management from the London Business School and an MBA from Brigham Young University in United States.

Research Themes
Research Summary

Mihaela's work has appeared in Organization Science and Strategic Management Journal, was featured in the Financial Times and is under review in prestigious Management journals. Her broad research focus is on the long-term organisational consequences of short-termism with a special interest in organisational learning and innovation. One of her first findings relates to the learning deficiencies caused by "selection at the gate" as an organisational practice (i.e. attempts of organisations to improve the success rate of their output by selecting promising cases as input). Building on this, a more recent focus of her research has been on the predicaments of firms which seek to accumulate experience fast (i.e., time compression diseconomies).

Teaching Summary

Mihaela teaches two large undergraduate courses (100+) on “Organisational Behaviour and Communications” and "Research Methods" and a graduate course on "Leadership and Communications". In her teaching, she emphasizes how an understanding of individual and group behaviour can improve both the quality of working life and the effectiveness of organisations. Mihaela has also been involved with the LSE Summer School where she used case method teaching for two courses: MG106 "Strategic Management" and MG211 "International Business".
