Dirk Lindebaum joined Cardiff Business School in March 2016 as a Professor in Organisation & Management. He obtained his PhD from Manchester Business School (MBS) in Organisational Psychology. Previously, he held a visiting professorship at Hanken School of Economics (Finland), and was a Reader at the University of Liverpool Management School. Between 2008 and 2010, he was a postdoctoral fellow at MBS. Before entering academia, he also completed an apprenticeship as a carpenter.
Although trained in Organisational Psychology, his interest in better understanding organisational phenomena involving emotional processes and consequences draws also on sociological approaches of late, especially in terms of advocating normative theories. This has also bearings on his critiques on the use of neuroscientific theories and methods in the study of organisational behaviour.
