Research Interests

My research interests are around the area of behavioral strategy and organizational theory. Specifically, I am interested in how various social forces and cognitive processes shape organizational outcomes such as economic performance, social evaluations, or individual career trajectories. I aim to study this not only in the setting of traditional, hierarchical corporations, but also in the context of cultural markets where organization is temporal and project-based, employment largely relies on informal ties, and performance expectations are vague.
