  1. You have just joined LBS as one of our newest faculty members. Can you tell us a little bit about your research?
    I’m interested in understanding how conflicting motives influence organizations and markets. Right now I’m primarily looking at this in the context of crowdfunding behaviour.

  2. What does your typical work day look like?
    I currently spend most of my days working on existing research projects, which involves everything from working with data, running statistics, and writing up results, to talking with co-authors and reading new research by others in the field. One great thing about this job is the diversity of activities that is required to do research.
