About Me

     I draw upon inter-disciplinary perspectives, my scholarship deals with issues such as strategic management under conditions of globalization and postcoloniality, workplace diversity and multiculturalism, corporate legitimacy, resistance in organizations, and epistemological and methodological issues. My research activities during the past 5 years include the publication of a scholarly edited book with a major international university press, articles in high-impact factor peer-reviewed journals such as Human Relations and Organization, several refereed presentations at the prestigious Academy of Management Annual Meetings, a number of invited national and international presentations (including key-note addresses), and a series of Professional Enrichment Program (P.E.P.) Seminars at UNH that draw upon my ongoing research on globalization. Currently, I am working on a book that explores the multi-dimensional implications of ongoing global transformations, and co-editing the scholarly reference volume, Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies.
