I joined Jacobs University in 2017, where I chair the undergraduate study program Global Economics and Management and teach organization theory, public and nonprofit management, and multi-stakeholder partnerships. My research is mostly on strategic organization, specifically: organizational malfunctions (and ways to avoid them), resistance to change, inter-organizational partnerships, and decision-making, with a particular interest in the public and nonprofit sectors, although not exclusively. Related projects received funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Peter Pribilla Foundation, the Wagener Foundation, the Dahlem Research School of the Freie Universität Berlin, and the industry.
I received my doctorate (Doktor rer. pol.) from the Freie Universität Berlin in 2011 and Master degrees in social sciences and management from the Linné Universitet i Växjö, Sweden (2005), and Université Paris Dauphine, France (2006). Prior to joining Jacobs University, I taught at Freie Universität Berlin, Universität zu Köln, the German Center for Aerospace Research (DLR), the Toulouse School of Management and ESCP Europe, among other institutions.
