Research Interests

My research interests focus on contemporary organizational landscapes and novel forms of organizing as well as the crucial importance of socio-cultural environments for the dynamics of organizational forms and practices. Conceptually, I draw on institutional analysis to study the entanglement of organizations and the multi-leveled meaning structures that underlie them. I am particularly intrigued by the role of visual and multimodal forms of communication in the emergence of novel organizational ideas, forms, and practices. My current research engages with phenomena such as societal grand challenges, organizational and system resilience, and collaborative action across differences. Methodologically, my focus is on innovative qualitative and mixed methods approaches to textual and discourse analysis, including visual and multimodal analysis as well as semantic network analysis.

Keywords: Organization and management theory, organizational institutionalism, governance, visual and multimodal organization research, discourse and rhetoric, qualitative and mixed methods
