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 Research Policy, Human RelationsOrganization Studies, New Media and Society, and Research in the Sociology of Organizations. 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 coordinates 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 Boston (2019) I will chair a Professional Development Workshop entitled "What Do You Mean? How to Research and Interpret Meaning Flows in Social Networks. The workshop builds on an AOM symposium from 2018 and on a recent volume in the series "Research in the Sociology of Organizations." It 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), Joe Labianca (University of Kentucky) and Jesse Fagan (University of Exeter).

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. Most recently, some results of this reseach have been accepted for publication in a book "Food Waste Management" (in press). 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, in press). 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. 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 University of Liverpool Management School) and give seminars at other schools. In 2019, I have been invited as a convenor at the Postdoc Workshop at the EGOS Colloquium.

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.
