Personal profile

Research interests

Research interests lie in a variety of topics in the strategic decision-making field. Some examples are cognitive and network approaches to strategic decision making, the role of email use, decision rules, management team decision making, rationality in groups and cognitive complexity. Additionally, my research aims to understand the causes and consequences of inter-organizational collaboration and inter-organizational tie dissolution.

Current teaching is in bachelor's and master's programs on Organization Studies, both content courses as well as thesis supervision. Besides these programs, I also teach in Bachelor programs in Liberal Arts & Sciences and Human Resource Management.

Specialties: Strategic decision making in Small and Medium-Sized Organizations, inter-organizational relations and networks.
