My initial research interest in organizational control has evolved into a research stream investigating the issues and complexities surrounding corporate governance, particularly as it relates to accountability, job performance, decision making, innovation, and strategic behavior in organizations. As reflected in my research, I have taken a keen interest in cross- disciplinary research. Most recently I have initiated two collaborative projects that apply my areas of expertise on governance and accountability to family business and entrepreneurship research. Lastly, I continue to expand on my competitive dynamics research, which in recent years has led to two studies on competitive bluffing behavior - on macro and the other micro in outlook.
