I study how institutions and competition shape organizational performance and behavior. My research focuses on inclusive business with implications for nonmarket strategy and competitive strategy in the context of emerging markets. To date, my research has been published or is forthcoming at Strategic Management Journal, Production and Operations Management, and Journal of Business Ethics.
