I’m an assistant professor at the Institute for Leadership and Organization at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in Germany.
In my research, I study collaboration in organizations across demographic boundaries, structural boundaries, and technological boundaries. I study demographic boundaries with a focus on gender, age, and migrant diversity. In my work on structural boundaries, I examine decentralized organizational structures and the collaboration between units and teams. The work on technological boundaries focuses on how different technologies may facilitate or impede collaboration in organizations. In studying collaboration across those boundaries I am particularly interested in how leadership, human resource practices, and societal events influence the success of collaboration efforts.
My research has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the Best Paper Proceedings of the Academy of Management, among others. Related work has been featured on a range of news outlets including MarketWatch, Morningstar, ZEIT, and Handelsblatt. For my research I received the 2018 Best Student Paper Award and the Outstanding Reviewer Awards by the Gender and Diversity Division of the Academy of Management (2018, 2020), the Schmalenbach-Preis 2020 for the best dissertation in business administration, and I was shortlisted for the VHB Best Paper Award 2020.
I teach Leadership, Teamwork, and Human Resource Management at the Bachelor and Master level and act as advisor for these students’ theses. Here is my homepage at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
I enjoy time outdoors ski touring, hiking, and running. This webpage is currently an ongoing project, so bear with me, as not all links are up and running fully yet. Thus, do check back from time to time as this page grows and expands. Thanks.
