I use in-depth qualitative research approaches to study how managers work in complex pluralistic settings that are often characterised by multiple rationalities, logics and identities. My research is problem-centered, focussing on questions such as how do managers adopt to new strategic challenges or balance competing demands? Theoretically, my research draws from theories of identity, culture, social practice and micro institutions. Methodologically, my work tends to be process-oriented and ethnographic in nature, with a growing interest in using video-ethnographic approaches. My current research projects are addressing three key topics; (1) how organizational identities change over time, (2) how managers perform coexistence of contradictory logics, (3) how managers use space and embodied practices during high-stakes strategic episodes.
