Biography

Dr. Rocío Valdivielso del Real joined the Business Management team at LJMU in August 2014. She is a Senior Lecturer in Management/Business at Liverpool Business School. She is the Module Leader in 'Globalisation and Business', and 'Global Business Environment'. She is also a Teaching Associate at Warwick Business School, a Research Associate at the London Centre for Corporate Governance and Business Ethics, Birkbeck College, University of London, and a Research Associate at ABM Analytics London.

Rocío completed her PhD in Management/Business at the University of London (Birkbeck College), November 2009. She also holds a M.Sc. in Regional and Urban Planning Studies from the London School of Economics, a MRes in Management/Organizational Behaviour at Birkbeck College, and a PhD in Political Science and Sociology from Complutense University (Madrid).

Rocío has published in high quality peer-reviewed journals ABS 3*. Her research interests includes: comparative corporate governance; role of institutions on economic policy and business performance; European Union liberalisation and the role of regulatory agencies – i.e. electricity and gas industries; sustainable development and energy policy, and globalisation, liberalisation and financial crisis. More broadly, her research activities has been disseminated in several conferences that stresses the importance of business and society and the role of institutions in contributing to the presence of cross-national differences in outcomes. Some of these settings were the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA); Copenhagen Business School (CBS); the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE); the Council for European Studies (CES); and the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance.

She has also been previously involved in research projects in both academia and private consultancy on the economics and politics of the liberalisation of network utilities - i.e. GEMAP, S.A.; Coopers & Lybrand; ASEP, S.A.
