My research interests lie at the intersection of strategy and organization theory. Specifically, I examine within-firm corporate governance processes, with an emphasis on how top management team and stakeholder belief systems influence strategic choices and outcomes. I draw upon a variety of literatures to explore how social evaluations (e.g., reputations, stigma), expectations, and the cognitive biases of managers influence illegal activities, executive compensation, and firm performance. My research has also received media coverage in Investor’s Business Daily, Miller-McCune, Strategy + Business, and a variety of other media outlets, both domestic and foreign.
