Accepting Doctoral Students

Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the practice-based approaches to the study of knowing, learning, and judgment in organisations. I am also interested in strategy-as-practice and how organisations make strategy to address wicked problems and grand challenges. Intellectually, I am particularly inspired by Polanyian epistemology and existential phenomenology. I also have a strong interest in qualitative research methods and integrative literature reviews.

My work has been published in leading journals including Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Annals, Organization Studies, Human Relations, and Management Learning.

I am looking for PhD students who share similar research interest as me and conduct qualitative studies.
