Yousaf Nishat-Botero is a PhD Fellow at Bayes Business School, City, University of London. Before joining Bayes, he received an MA from the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, Kingston University, with a dissertation on Jacques Lacan's 'The Function and Field of Speech and Language in Psychoanalysis' (1953). Working at the intersections of organization studies, critical theory, and political economy, his PhD research focuses on questions of democratic economic planning and alternative organizing. During his time at City, he has also been a graduate teaching assistant for introductory courses on organisational behaviour and on critical thinking.
