Academic CV

My research focuses on the micro-processes underlying the corporate social engagement of firms.  Two broad questions shape my research agenda. First I seek to answer how employees acting as entrepreneurs drive the corporate social engagement of firms and second, I analyze how firms can use the preferences of employees to create a strategic link between such engagement and firm performance. In line with these research interest, I have also developed several teaching cases which have been granted awards by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and the OIKOS foundation.
