Profile Summary 

I believe that businesses can create sustainable value for all stakeholders only by balancing their decision making to include multiple, but sometimes conflicting, interests. My teaching is tuned to developing this sensitivity among future managers and administrators. My research, following the same theme, is field-based and in-depth to reach a nuanced understanding of multiple points of view. My outlook, developed through rigorous academic training across multiple cultures and contexts and personal life experiences, is international.
