Dr Christine Unterhitzenberger is a Senior Lecturer in Project Management at Liverpool Business School and Programme Leader of the Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA).

She has recently successfully secured a funding in this area from the EU in the context of the Marie Sklodowska Curie Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) as well as from the Association for Project Management (APM) in the UK.
