I am an Assistant Professor in the Management & Marketing Department of Manhattan College. My main research interests lie within the field of strategy. I explore factors affecting the strategic choices and performance of social control agents within the corporate legal context. I believe their discretion lies in the selection of polysemantic laws, or those open to multiple interpretations. I am also interested in the crowding out of intrinsic motivations in the business context and in the diffusion of corporate structures.
