Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on corporate strategy, with a particular interest in mergers and acquisitions. My projects investigate factors that affect firms’ ability to appropriate value from acquisitions, including factors that change the intensity of competition in the market for corporate control and signaling effects that change the standalone valuation of potential targets. These projects build on a variety of data sources, including smartphone-geolocational data, transportation data, patent text, and news text. My research has been published in the Strategic Management Journal and has received scholarly awards, including the Wiley Blackwell Outstanding Dissertation Award in Strategic Management and the Best Corporate Strategy Interest Group Proposal Award at the Strategic Management Society Annual Conference.
