I am currently an assistant professor of Strategy & Organization in the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. Prior, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Corporate Reputation at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. I completed my PhD in Sociology at Northwestern University.
Theoretically, my work lies at the intersection of organizational studies, culture, economic sociology, and entrepreneurship. I have two primary streams of research on 1) entrepreneurial emergence and 2) organizational identity and reputation.
I study these issues primarily through qualitative research methods (e.g., participant observation, interviews, and content analysis). Empirically, my research centers on the culinary industry: restaurant kitchens, pop-up and underground restaurants, and gourmet food trucks.
