Biography

Science, like all creative activity, is exploration, gambling, and adventure. It does not lend itself very well to neat blueprints, detailed road maps, and central planning. Perhaps that’s why it’s fun.

- Simon, H. A. 1964. Approaching the theory of management. In H. Koontz (Ed.), Toward a unified theory of management: 73-85. New York: McGraw-Hill.

Topics I am interested in are:

  • Institutional and Organisational Change
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Legitimacy
  • Public Relations
