Dr Williamson was the winner of the 2019 WMS Divisional Teaching Excellence Award. She currently teaches masters students about thinking and managing strategically, and final year students about commercialising a venture.

Amanda's research intersects the fields of entrepreneurship, psychology and artificial intelligence. In the context of entrepreneurial behavior, she is interested in (1) health and emotions, (2) pro-social drivers, and (3) the use of innovative research methods (e.g., machine learning, experience sampling, physiological measurement).
