My research examines the role of corporations and alternative forms of organizing such as social enterprises in addressing a range of complex challenges facing societies today. I study why and how these organizations integrate social goals into their commercial activities, the opportunities and challenges they encounter both from within and outside the organization, and how organizing for social and economic goals differs across institutional contexts.
I have a PhD in Management from the Freie Universitaet Berlin and was a postdoctoral scholar at the Hertie School before joining Tilburg University. I have held visiting positions at Cornell University and the Kellogg School of Management. At Tilburg University, I serve on the Ethical Review Board of the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences and as the coordinator of the MSc Organization Studies.
