Contact Dr Chantal Cantarelli
Chantal joined Cranfield University Management School in 2022 as an Associate Professor in Project and Programme Management. Previously she had a Lectureship position at Sheffield University Management School and a Research fellowship position at Said Business School, University of Oxford. She holds a BSc., MSc., and PhD from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
Chantal is an Associate Fellow of the Association for Project Management (APM) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy(SFHEA).
Chantal is interested to supervise doctoral students in the areas of megaprojects, project performance, front-end planning, risk management, project complexity, innovation, project finance and procurement, sustainable project delivery, and project resilience. Please contact me if you are interested in pursuing a doctorate in this area.
Chantal’s research broadly focusses on the performance of major programmes, investigating the decision-making, planning and management of such programmes. She is particularly interested in megaproject management, project complexity, innovation, escalation of commitment, and project procurement.
Her research is published in international journals (see publication section).
