Personal profile


My research deals with strategizing in complex and uncertain situations that concern business and society. These situations include, for instance, food, sustainability, environmental protection and human health. My research explores how strategizing unfolds within groups and organizations over time, the underlying conditions and mechanisms, and how these processes lead to strategic outcomes. To conduct my research I use process methods and practice perspectives.
