Dr William Klubinski


Department: Newcastle Business School

With over 10 years of full-time experience in a corporate setting, I have held roles as a Senior Data Analyst, Data Analytics Subject Matter Expert (SME), and Data Scientist, demonstrating a strong foundation in data analysis and strategy. Since August 2021, I have been working with  Northumbria University, where I teach a variety of accounting and finance-related modules. My work extends into research, focusing on the intersection of finance, psychology, and group differences, showcasing my commitment to interdisciplinary study. I hold a PhD in Finance (Essex University), an MSc in Accounting, Finance, and Strategic Investments (Newcastle University Business School), and a BA (Hons) in Business and Finance Management (University of Sunderland). I have also achieved the Fellowship in Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
