Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of strategic management, with an emphasis on strategic leadership, the study of chief executive officers and their effect on organizational outcomes. Majority of my work examines managerial discretion, the extent to which executives are able to influence their firms’ strategic actions and eventual performance. I also have an interest in the topics of corporate governance, executive personal characteristics, institutions and entrepreneurs.
