About

2015august1_smallI’m a PhD candidate studying business administration in the Department of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. My research interests include corporate strategy, corporate sustainability, governance and property rights, and research methods for analyzing business performance. My dissertation examines how firms participate in multi-sector coalitions to establish and enforce property rights and use rules for ecosystems like forests, fisheries, watersheds, soil systems, and atmospheres. Other projects promote open science reforms in strategy research, use simulations to explore the robustness and validity of econometric estimators popular in strategy research, and examine relationships between international business, conflict, and peace processes. I expect to graduate in spring 2019 and hope to earn a tenure-track assistant professor position in strategic management.
