Organisation profile

I am a research associate at the Chair of Business in Society at Leuphana University of Lüneburg. 

From 2019-2023, I was a PhD fellow at the department for Management, Society and Communication at Copenhagen Business School. My PhD thesis empirically explores how self-managing modes of organizing can emerge and be sustained when embedded within established organizational settings.

Originally trained in the humanities and in ethnographic methods, my MSc in Sustainability & Management (University of Bath, UK) led me to the field of organization and management studies. Building on this foundation, I use qualitative methodologies to study phenomena around new and alternative forms of organizing as well as employee activism. 

My current research interests center around two main areas.  Firstly, I am interested new forms of organizing, specifically self-managing forms of organizing, in the digital context (specifically, Decentralized, Autonomous Organisations (DAOs)). Secondly,  I seek to expand my research on employee activism with a specific focus on inter-organizational communities of activists. 


At the Chair of Business in  Society I am also engaged in strengthening Leuphana University’s commitment to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management (PRME).
