My research focus is on cross-sector collaboration between multinational corporations, nonprofits and governments in the contexts of high institutional complexity such as sustainable cities, energy transition and industry renewal. My research intersects organizational theory, international business and social purpose.
Prior to joining academia I worked ten years in business consulting and took also part in volunteer work.
I earned my D.Sc. (Econ.) at Helsinki School of Economics in 2008, and was a Visiting Scholar at SCANCOR/Weatherhead (Harvard) and at Queen's University (Canada) in 2016 and WU Vienna in 2019.
