Welcome to my homepage!


I am an associate professor of strategic management at the Department of Organization Sciences at the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands, interested in business and society interactions, activist group tactics versus firms and issues of multi-stakeholder governance.


Between September 2013 and June 2014 I have been a visiting professor at Copenhagen Business School, hosted by the Sustainability Platform and the Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility.


This homepage contains links to my research and teaching activities, a short CV and a few links I find useful or interesting. Please contact me if you have any further questions or remarks or visit my blog.
