Naveena is a Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management at Southampton Business School, University of Southampton.

I am interested in leadership and inclusion/exclusion in organisations. My areas of research extend to the digital context in which I have investigated populist responses to leadership, as well as inclusion/exclusion in digital media platforms. I have recently begun exploring alternative, Non-Western theorising of leadership.

Naveena completed her PhD at Durham University Business School. Her doctoral work investigated authentic leadership, and the notion of “authentic performances” examining two supposedly opposing constructs, authenticity, and impression management in conjunction.

Prior to joining Southampton Business School in September 2020, Naveena was a Lecturer in Leadership/HRM at the School of Management, Swansea University where she led and taught modules including Leadership, Human Resource Management and Business ethics. At Swansea, Naveena held School level roles which include Athena SWAN academic Co-Chair, and Academic Integrity Officer.

Naveena has presented at several international conferences including European Group of Organization Studies, International Critical Management Studies conference, and International Studying Leadership Conference.
