I am a PhD Candidate in the Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship department at University of Minnesota.
My research interests lie in the areas of nonmarket strategy, corporate philanthropy, and social movement.
In this research stream, I have two publications in Strategic Management Journal.
Especially, my lead-author paper, which examines the performance implication of diversification in corporate philanthropy, was recognized with many awards, including the Distinguished Paper Award from the Academy of Management’s STR Division, the Outstanding Paper Award from the Annual Conference of Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability.
My dissertation examines the understudied phenomenon of corporate advocacy giving
(i.e., donations to advocacy nonprofits such as activist groups and think tanks).
Its first chapter received the 2019 Robert J. Litschert Award from the STR Division in the Academy of Management.
In the second chapter (Job market paper), I examine the dynamics of ideological competition in advocacy giving.
I am excited to join the faculty of Mays Business School in Texas A&M University as an Assistant Professor
in their department of Management in Summer 2021.
