My research is organized around three major themes: corporate social responsibility (CSR), knowledge flows in social networks, and the role of technology in social interaction.

The topic of food under the umbrella of CSR is a core theme in my research. Empirically, I study how food waste in Dutch supermarkets is organized. Most recently, some results of this reseach have been published in a book "Food Waste Management." In line with this interest, together with Jean-Pascal Gond (Cass Business School) I have published a critical essay on the topic of micro-CSR (Human Relations). I am editorial board member and guest editor of Organization Studies, working on a special issue on the topic of “Food Organizing Matters”. This project brings together a great team of researchers: Frank den Hond, Juliane Reinecke, Gregoire Croidieu and Silviya Svejenova. Working toward this special issue is exciting and we hope to deliver a tasty, fruitful and satisfying special issue.

Around the theme of knowledge flows, and relatedly knowledge sharing and meaning networks, I am working on a number of projects, collaborating with other researchers from different universities. A great example of my interest in knowledge networks is a recent publication in Research Policy where we investigated how social connectivity influences the diffusion of creative ideas (with among others Dirk Deichmann, Julie Birkholz, Peter Groenewegen). 


Finally, nowadays, people are somewhat more accustomed to digital platforms; yet, many questions remain about how they, and other technology, permeate our social interactions. This question is most relevant for organizations, because technology will become an even larger part of our lives in the years to come. It is time that we start to take it seriously, and contribute to the debate from an organization studies point of view. I am currently working with Frank den Hond (Hanken School of Economics, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) on a project where we map and critically reflect on how “technology” has been discussed in the business-society debate. With Frank den Hond and Dirk Lindebaum (Grenoble Ecole de Management) I have written an essay on the topic of moral development in the age of algorithms. We argue that humans and algorithms co-constitute morality, and that humans are not – as is commonly assumed – in control. 


I am teaching across different levels and in different courses. I like to innovate courses and teaching methods, and have recently published a journal article on the topic of "flipped classrooms." I also enjoy to teach PhD courses. I teach a course on presentating to VU PhD candidates. I am a faculty member of the annual HELAM PhD workshop (collaborating with Hanken School of Economics and Grenoble Ecole de Management) and give seminars at other schools. In 2019, I have been invited as a convenor at the Postdoc Workshop at the EGOS Colloquium.
