I am an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management in the Department of Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. He also co-organizes the CSOL (Carnegie School of Organizational Learning) Academy – a virtual doctoral and junior faculty summer school in which leading scholars of the field share foundational ideas and recent developments in the tradition of the Carnegie school. I holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA) and did my post-doc at the Institute of Management and Organization at the University of Lugano in Switzerland. In a previous life, I worked as management consultant restructuring near-bankrupt companies, had a front-row seat to the 2007/08 financial crisis as a leveraged finance banker in London, and co-founded a cafe and a film production company. My research examines how organizations adapt to unexpected disruptions and uncertain futures. Normatively, it is motivated by the question of when and how climate change disruptions foster more sustainable and equitable societal transformations. Theoretically, my research engages with Behavioral Strategy, the Carnegie School, and explores the tension between evolutionary theory and design thinking. Empirically, it predominantly employs quantitative methods and draws on large panel datasets.
