Interest

Guided by the premise that a company’s strategy is a human construction and organizations become reflections of their top managers, I have studied executive narcissism as a formal construct for explaining strategic decision-making and performance.
 I am also studying entrepreneurial behaviors, how business and society interact in emerging markets, founding teams, and the psychology of competition.

I am working on several papers that examine how inequality within and outside firms is addressed through institutional mechanisms and social movements. I am also working on a large project on political leadership in emerging economies.
