I am an Associate Professor and a Haub Family Fellow at Boston College.  My research bridges competitive and corporate strategy by exploring the interdependence of organization design choices and competitive strategy in multiunit firms. I study those managerial choices that structure the organization, define the nature of power and influence, and shape the firmís competitive stance.   

My work has appeared in Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management and other leading academic journals and received several distinctions including the Emerald Citation of Excellence Award, an honorable mention for the SMS Best Conference Paper Prize, and was a finalist for the Carolyn Dexter Best International Paper Award, AOM HR Divisionís Scholarly Achievement Award, and the BPS division Outstanding Dissertation Award.  I also received best reviewer awards from Academy of Management Review and SMS Corporate Strategy IG (twice), and the Coughlin award for graduate teaching.

I received my Ph.D. in strategy from INSEAD in 2008.  Prior to joining academia, I worked as a consultant in the healthcare industry and also co-founded an advertisement agency, wherein I served as a managing-partner.  Currently, I am a member of the AOM Business Policy and Strategy division's research committee and a representative-at-large for the SMS Corporate Strategy interest group.  I also serve on the editorial boards of Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and Global Strategy Journal, and am an Associate Editor for the Journal of Organization Design.

At the Carroll School, I currently teach the M.B.A. core courses Introduction to Strategic Management and Strategic Management and M.B.A. elective Industry & Competitive Analysis.
