My general research interest revolves around corporate elites’ characteristics and behavior, and their interaction with internal and external organizational constituencies. My dissertation investigates the phenomenon of CEOs sociopolitical activism: how business leaders take a stand and speak out about polarizing issues unrelated to companies core business, with the primary goal of making a change in society.
