Research interests

My research agenda focuses upon the business and society field, and more specifically upon a broad range of research questions pertaining to the business case for corporate social responsibility. Of particular interest are the effects of firms’ social performance on corporate reputation and financial performance. I am a member of the editorial board of Business and Society and my work is published in leading management journals, such as the Journal of Management Studies, the British Journal of Management, the European Management Journal, the Journal of Business Research, the Journal of Business Ethics, theInternational Journal of Industrial OrganisationResearch PolicyFinancial Management, and the Journal of Business Finance and Accounting.
