About Geeta Lakshmi
Geeta has worked in a number of UK Universities teaching Finance. She joined UOL in 2004 and has supervised and examined PhD students. Currently, she has as Director of study, 3 PhD completions and over 80 postgraduate and undergraduate dissertations to her credit.
She is a passionate teacher, researcher and practitioner and firmly believes that the three roles enhance and enrich each other. The questions in the classroom have led to published papers and projects with students on employability and her practical experience as an active member managing a community turbine has provided fodder for further research on how performance measures should include metrics beyond the financial ones.
Geeta carries the principles of community engagement beyond the civic boundaries and applies them to her workplace where she leads her programme and admin roles in a collaborative style.She has been mentoring and guiding junior and new colleagues with her international experience in the industry for 32 years.

I have worked with colleagues in University of Oxford and University of Reading on projects funded by IFA, World Bank and CDC, UK on the role of the private sector in assisting economic development.
I am a director of Sustainable Hockerton (SHOCK), a community owned wind turbine and PV panel project. This is a project I helped to set up, which promotes sustainable living in the community. http://www.sustainablehockerton.org/
My role in this area has led to me being interested in research on how community interactions and the environment can enhance the role of sustainable financial sector. The idea of "not just for profit" has been explored by my research publications and conference and institutional presentations.
