He also studies the impact of social hierarchies on how people collaborate in teams by focusing on the interplay among identity formation, communication, conflict, and performance. He has taught a variety of courses at INSEAD and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He has also conducted executive training sessions for various organisations including Astellas Pharma, Merck, and Societe Generale.
