Research Interests

My research involves institutional theory and in particular the concept of decoupling.  I am interested in how organisations respond to institutional pressures with various strategies and how those strategies may be enacted or resisted by internal actors.  A key contribution of my work is in theoretically integrating both traditional accounts of decoupling and more recent developments into a single coherent frame.  The empirical setting for my PhD is UK business schools and their strategies for integrating sustainability into their organisations.
