My broad research interests encompass the areas of innovation and governance. The first strand of my research focuses on the coordination of creative inputs in the cultural and scientific sectors with a focus on the temporal aspects of organizing innovation. The second explores environment, social and governance (ESG) practices including the role of the media in framing corporate scandals.
