Research areas

My research concerns organizational micro-mechanisms and focuses on the causes and consequences of delegation and authority-granting across multiple levels of hierarchy. Using different methodological approaches, I study search and problem-solving and how decision-makers can strategically foster cooperation and competition within organizations.
