Personal Statement

Following three years as the Associate Dean for Research, I have now taken up the role of Associate Dean, Faculty, with responsibilities relating to staff development and recruitment at ULMS. I act as senior editor for Organization Studies OS and as consulting editor for the International Journal of Management Reviews IJMR. I also serve on the editorial boards for the Academy of Management Review AMR and (from August, 2018) for the Academy of Management Learning and Education AMLE.

My research interests revolve around the areas of strategy, learning in organisations, and research methodology. I am interested in stability/change relationships, the interplay between individual action and wider institutional processes, as well as possibilities of practice and process theoretical perspectives for studying organisations. Together with colleagues from Copenhagen Business School I have begun working on a research stream on strategy and rationality, probing into the space between calculation and the gut. This follows on from my collaboration with Prof Robin Holt which currently involves a monograph on 'the poverty of strategy' commissioned by Cambridge University Press.
