About me


I am currently a PhD candidate at ESADE Business School (Univ. Ramon Llull). I have two main research strands: (1) micro-CSR, where I focus on understanding the micro-foundations of stakeholders’ reactions (e.g., employees) to corporate social responsibility initiatives; and (2) LGBTIQ+ issues in organizations, specifically to understand how they navigate the job market and hiring-selection processes.

In terms of teaching, I am comfortable teaching courses on organizational behavior, human resource management, and business & society. I have also taught organizational theory in the past.

My work has been published in Business Ethics, Environment & Responsibility (formerly, Business Ethics: A European Review), Sustainability, and Managerial and Decision Economics.
