I joined New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business in July 2023 as an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations.
I specialize in non-market strategy and stakeholder strategy. One stream of my current research focuses on the key role of stakeholders in shaping the formation and effectiveness of corporate political strategy. My work demonstrates that as partisan polarization and democratic backsliding intensify, stakeholders’ demand for corporate political activities to align with their personal values not only erodes the strategic gains from corporate campaign contributions but also transforms these contributions into a form of corporate political advocacy.
Additionally, I have explored how companies employing disruptive innovations, amid heightened regulatory uncertainty, can tailor their campaign contribution strategies to proactively influence the supply of policy entrepreneurs to their market advantage. My research on this topic, within the context of the U.S. fracking industry, was the Runner-up for the 2023 SMS Best Conference Paper Award.
I earned my Ph.D. in Business Administration from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. Prior to joining NYU Stern, I was an Assistant Professor of Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. I am a member of the Non-Market Strategy Research Community (NMSRC).
