My research and teaching focus on 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, 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. I have held visiting positions at the Kellogg School of Management and the Industrial and Labor Relations School at Cornell University, where I was a Fulbright Scholar. Before joining Tilburg University, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Hertie School.
