Lila joined the Stirling Management School in August 2014 as a Lecturer in Management Sustainable Practice. Her teaching focuses on Responsible Business at an undergraduate and postgraduate level, and research interests include the sociology of work and transnational healthcare provision. Lila is a member of the General University Ethics Panel and the Stirling Management School Lead on the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education.
She is also a Fellow of the HEA.
Lila obtained her PhD from the Department of Management, Strathclyde University Business School in 2014. She has studied Economics at the Athens University of Economics and Business in Greece (BSc) and the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands (MSc). Before starting her PhD degree, Lila has worked for Quality Control and Accounting Departments in the private sector in Germany and Greece. During her PhD studies she actively participated in the organisation of international academic conferences, and organised business seminars on medical tourism in Athens and Thessaloniki aimed at medical doctors,entrepreneurs and business consultants.
Lila's research interests primarily include the sociology of the professions and the internationalisation of health care. Her PhD explored aspects of entrepreneurship as exhibited by medical professionals in a highly commercialised segment of the global health care provision. Within that framework, she explored the impact of changing relations and structures on professional identity, power, and cohesion, and through that investigated developments in contemporary professionalism. Most recently, her research expanded in the area of public health care professionals' (doctors) and lobbyists' work and work ethics. Lila is currently studying the work of Data Science professionals. At the same time, she examines ways to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into HEI programmes accredited by professional associations (sponsored by the UN PRME UK and Ireland Chapter).
Lila is interested in supervising PhD projects in the field of the sociology of the professions, work ethics, transnational healthcare or responsible business.
