Overview

  • My research expertise lies in understanding various ways corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability initiatives create business value. Specifically, I examine the impact of sustainability on stakeholder perceptions and behaviors, firm innovation, market share, and other business outcomes. I also explore how firms can best communicate their sustainability efforts to different stakeholders, through effective advertising, sustainability reporting, and so on.
    My research has appeared in many premier journals including Journal of Consumer Research, Management Science, Harvard Business Review, International Journal of Research in Marketing, International Journal of Management Review, and others. I frequently present my research in leading academic forums both nationally and internationally, and have researched and consulted to various companies on their CSR strategies, including Stonyfield Farm, Procter and Gamble, Allianz, among others.
