Jane Stoate

Jane Stoate loved the University of Leeds so much she stayed for almost 10 years before venturing out into the wider world. She first studied for a Joint Honours in Psychology and Management, finding that her passion lay right in the applied middle of the two subjects; organizational psychology.

Through the support of the ESRC 1+3 scheme and Business School staff, Jane pursued this passion, taking on a Masters in Human Resource Management before knuckling down for the long haul of a PhD in the Management Division.  Her research focused on the complex dynamics of Multiteam Systems, paying specific attention to the influence this unique organisation design has on inter and intra-team communication, coordination and cognition. She chose to study the functioning of these teams within the high pressure context of Emergency Response, which gave Jane a thirst for understanding failure and how it can be prevented. Following her PhD, Jane continued to follow this line of thinking, deciding to pursue a career in Risk Management within the Insurance Industry.

 

Manuel Ojeda Cabral

Dr Manuel Ojeda Cabral is a Research Fellow in Transport Economics and Appraisal at the Institute for Transport Studies (University of Leeds). With a background in economics, he specialised in the application of economics to transportation as a postgraduate student, obtaining his PhD from the Leeds University Business School in 2015. His areas of expertise cover cost-benefit analysis of transport investments, the valuation of non-market goods (e.g. time, accessibility or environmental attributes) and choice modelling. Manuel has been involved in several research projects directly linked to economic policy, such as the latest national value of time study commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT) that feeds into the UK transport appraisal guidelines.
