Research interests

I am interested in theoretical lenses and research taking a practice turn in the field of organisation studies. In particular, I m examining

  • strategic planning as a communication process.
  • the social construction of price and risk.
  • the role of aesthetics and communication technologies on strategizing.
  • the role of strategy tools within strategy-making.
  • the practice turn in strategic management.
