 Profile

Christina’s research examines strategy making in entrepreneurial firms. He current work is inspired by the sharing economy and the entrepreneurial strategies that nascent peer-to-peer marketplaces pursue to build two-sided networks. Her dissertation on this topic was a finalist for the 2017 Technology and Innovation Management dissertation award in the Academy of Management. Her other research projects study entrepreneurial firms’ strategic use of language and its role in resource acquisition and development. She is enthusiastic about inductive, theory building studies using qualitative data as well as content analysis and text mining techniques. She has published her work in the Academy of Management Discoveries journal, and frequently presents her work at premier academic conferences such the Academy of Management, and the Strategic Management Society conferences.
