I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, a partnership between the Ross School of Business and School for Environment and Sustainability. My research and teaching are at the intersection of business strategy, sustainability, and responsibility, with a secondary area in research methods and knowledge production processes.

My scholarly home is the University of Michigan Erb Institute and the Strategy and Management & Organizations departments of the Michigan Ross School of Business. I am a member of the Academy of Management, Strategic Management Society, Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability, Impact Scholar Community, Group for Research on Organizations and the Natural Environment, European Group for Organizational Studies, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. I review manuscripts for colleagues, conferences, and journals including Management Science, Organization & Environment, Journal of Management Studies, Business & Society, Journal of International Business, and Behavioral Science and Policy.

I received my Ph.D. in Business Administration (Strategy and Entrepreneurship) from the University of Minnesota. I also hold a Master’s of Urban Regional Planning from the University of California, Irvine, and a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Prior to academia I held positions in organizations spanning multiple sectors. In the private sector, I worked for the Orange County Business Council, REI, and property management companies. In the nonprofit sector, I worked for the Gulf Restoration Network, Spurlock Museum, and several universities. In the public sector, I worked for the USA Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, and National Park Service. Outside of my work, I enjoy reading fiction, strolling rather than walking or hiking, and following public policy. I volunteer with several nonprofit organizations and support independent journalism.
