Research and Consultancy

Stella is a critical theorist with prime interests in Governance activities and their relationship to social theories like social capital.

Stella’s PhD topic is in “Early Warning Systems for Banking Crisis with the Inclusion of Corporate Governance.” The central aim of this study is to understand how social capital influences the behaviours of boards of directors in the governance of Ugandan banks. In addressing this, the research demonstrates how directors build, develop, and use social capital. Additionally, the research discusses how social capital affects directors’ behaviours, which may ultimately influence the governance of Ugandan banks.

Currently, Stella is working on a paper for the International Journal of Technology with Ekaterina Koroleva and Michel Baggieri on the topic of “Company Performance: Are Environmental, Social and Governance Factors Important?”
