I conduct research on the dynamics of social change at organizational, industry and societal levels. I am especially interested in how people and organizations deploy cultural resources to bring about or resist social change. I have studied the role of emotions in social change, the role of social movements in creating popular support for local products, and organizations’ efforts to promote new ideas. I am currently conducting several projects that examine the role of authenticity in business and in society at large. I am also studying organizational and societal responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. My work appears or is forthcoming in such leading management journals as Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, and Harvard Business Review, among others.
I am a Senior Editor at Organization Studies. I am also currently serving on the editorial boards of Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, and Research in the Sociology of Organizations. I also review for a variety of other leading scholarly journals, including Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, and American Sociological Review.
