Helen Mussell

Research Associate


Helen’s research is highly interdisciplinary. She is published in philosophy (ethics, epistemology and ontology), heterodox economics, and social psychology.  A monograph, Care Ethics, Social Responsibility & Organizations has been commissioned by Palgrave Macmillan for publication in 2020.

Personal background

Helen holds an MPhil and PhD in Gender Studies from the University of Cambridge, funded by the Cambridge Political Economy Society Trust.

Prior to academia, Helen pursued a career in industry between her undergraduate and postgraduate studies. This career brought her into direct contact with corporate social responsibility, organisational culture issues regarding gender, leadership and management in the workplace, and has most recently led her to research in sustainable finance, including fiduciary duty and trust in organisations.
