BIO

I am an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University.

Rubenstein Research Fellow at the Brookings Institution. I hold a PhD in Economics and a Master of Science degree in Environmental Economics and Policy. My research interest is on enterprise sustainability broadly defined, covering the intersection of business strategy/entrepreneurship an social/environmental issues. At McMaster, I teach 4th year undergraduate courses in Sustainability and International Business.
