Description

My research focuses on people management issues in large, multinational organizations, including both the future of work – i.e., technology-driven changes in how people work – and human resource management. In my Provost role, I am also interested in leadership issues more generally, and the future of higher education.

I am Principal Investigator of the ongoing Academy of Finland financed project “Brave New HR: The Digitalization of People Management
