David Knights is a Distinguished Scholar and Professor in the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology at Lancaster University Management School and at the Oxford Brookes Business School. His research is in the field of leadership, power and identity, gender and diversity, the body and ethics.

My current research has been related to academics in business schools, the global financial crisis, the body and embodiment and veterinary surgeons. I jointly created and edited Gender, Work, and Organization from 1994 until 2016 and now am on the advisory editorial board. I have published several books and international refereed journal articles, including an edited book entitled Leadership Matters?: Finding Voice, Connection and Meaning in the 21st Century, New York: Greenleaf, 2017 with Chris Mabey. I have benefited from securing numerous research grants.
