NOTES & UPDATES:
January 14, 2016:
My colleagues and I won the 2014-2015 Department of Organization Studies Excellence in Teaching award. Congrats to my colleagues and thank you!
Thank you for visiting my website, where you can find information about my education, research and teaching experience. I'm currently an assistant professor at the Department of Organization Studies, Tilburg University (NL). Prior to my current appointment, I was a postdoctoral research scholar at the Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis (USA)
I’m currently interested in social hierarchies (power and status), and I'm pursuing this research in the intra- and inter-organizational contexts. Please contact me if you are interested in this line of work and especially if you are interested in joining our research group. My contact information is below.
