Personal information

Christine Moser is an Assistant Professor of Organization Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In her research, she focuses on knowledge flows at the intersection of offline and online collaboration networks. In addition, she is interested in corporate social responsibility in the context of food (waste). Her research has been published among others in New Media and Society, Research in the Sociology of Organizations, and Information Systems Journal. She is a guest editor for Organization Studies and has recently co-edited a volume of Research in the Sociology of Organizations. In addition, she is part of the organizing team for the EGOS Colloquium in 2021 which will be held at VU Amsterdam.


My research is organized around two major themes: Knowledge and food.

Around the theme of "knowledge", and relatedly knowledge sharing and meaning networks, I am working on a number of projects, collaborating with other researchers from different universities. For example, at the Academy of Management in Chicago (2018) I chaired a symposium entitled "Networks of Meaning – Recent Research on Structure, Content and Meaning Networks". This symposium builds on a recent volume in the series "Research in the Sociology of Organizations" and aims to continue the emerging conversation about how social and meaning networks are intertwined, and how this matters for organizations. For this symposium, I collaborate among others with Steve Borgatti (University of Kentucky), Peter Groenewegen (VU Amsterdam), Dirk Deichmann (RSM), Stefano Tasselli (RSM), Francesca Pallotti (University of Greenwich) and Alessandro Lomi (University of Italian Switzerland).

The topic of “food” is also a core theme of my research. Empirically, I study corporate social responsibility and specifically I question how food waste in Dutch supermarkets is organized. In line with this interest, I currently work with Jean-Pascal Gond (Cass Business School) on the topic of micro-CSR. I am a 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.


I am teaching across different levels and in different courses. Most recently, I have developed, coordinated and taught two Master courses, one course for BCO students about "Organizing Strategically", in Dutch; and one course for BCO and SBI students (Faculty of Exact Sciences) about "Networked Organizations and Communication"). I regularly supervise Master theses in the BCO Master. The topic of the theses is currently "Food waste in Dutch supermarkets". In 2018, one of my students from this project was nominated for the FSW Master thesis award. In addition, I teach a module in a course for PhD candidates and discuss how to use virtual data.
