I am Assistant Professor of Strategic Management and Organization, and H.E. Pearson Faculty Fellow at the Alberta School of Business. My research examines the strategies and practices organizations pursue in response to emerging cultural concerns related to sustainability and values, and the impact of such cultural concerns on technology innovation and institutional arrangements.

My work has been published or is forthcoming in the Academy of Management JournalOrganization StudiesResearch Policy, Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law ReviewEnvironmental Practice, and Research in the Sociology of Work. Ongoing research examines these issues in the context of shale gas drilling, hydraulic fracturing patents, multinational divestitures, social benefit corporations, climate change, nuclear power plants, and organizational codes of conduct.

I previously spent 13 years in industry as an entrepreneur, manager and executive in the areas of management consulting, business development, technology management, and marketing strategy. I graduated from Cornell University (B.S.) and the Pennsylvania State University (Ph.D.).

Copies of my published articles and selected working papers may be downloaded for free through the Social Sciences Research Network.
