I expect to complete my PhD in Strategy, Entrepreneurship, and Management from Alberta School of Business, University of Alberta in summer 2020. I earned a Master of Environmental Management degree from Yale University.
Prior to my academic career, I worked with the Forest Trust, the American Friends Service Committee, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, and the Global Environmental Institute in a number of managerial and consultancy roles.
I conduct research on corporate sustainability, with a focus on sustainability certifications. My research engages with various important matters such as forest, gender, and the future of business. My broader research and teaching interests include: How do organizations work? How could businesses contribute to societal welfare? How could management scholarship help build a better society?
