I am a postdoctoral Research Associate in the Institute for International Management at Loughborough University London, contributing to the ESRC-funded project 'Globalizing Actors in Multinational Companies'. Previously, I was Teaching Fellow in International Management at King’s Business School. I hold a PhD and MSc from King’s College London and BSc from the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria.

My research focuses on comparative management at the intersection of institutions and firms. In particular, I am interested in the role of corporate actors in institutional change processes. I have expertise in conducting comparative, longitudinal studies using mixed-methods approaches, including panel data analysis, discourse analysis, and semi-structured interviews.

I am a member of the Academy of Management (AOM) and Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) and regularly present my work there as well as at other international conferences.
