At a high level, my research examines the (mis)alignment of culture with policy during reforms. My dissertation, titled Institutional Logics and Economic Development in Latin America, incorporates comparative-historical analytic techniques into organizational institutionalism to theorize how institutional logics shape and change through the event sequencing of institutional reforms, through empirical analyses of market reforms to Argentina’s and Mexico’s state oil firms.

Several of my projects have been published in academic outlets:

At Oklahoma State, I will teach Strategic Management to senior BSBA students.

At Northwestern, I taught 70 undergraduate students in one section of Leadership in Organizations, required for the Business Institutions minor. The course surveyed social-scientific principles of leadership from psychology, organizational behavior, and sociology, applied at micro (judgment and decision-making, interpersonal influence, teamwork), meso (negotiation, motivation, social networks), and macro (organizational change and organizational politics) levels of organization.

I have also been a teaching assistant to over one thousand students in Kellogg’s executive, international executive, full-time, and part-time MBA programs in eight courses:

  • Power in Organizations
  • Leadership in Organizations
  • Leading and Managing Diverse Organizations
  • Negotiation Strategies
  • Leading the Strategic Change Process
  • Managing Organizations for Growth
  • Bargaining
  • Strategy Implementation
