Although working full-time in business does not leave me too much time for research, every now and then, I try to share some of my thoughts and write scientific papers and thought pieces.  In my research, I have focused mainly on theory and practice of negotiation, decision making routines and innovation management.

I am very grateful to Peter Kesting, my friend, mentor and the first co-author, who patiently taught me how to write scientific papers and has remained a great sparring partner for years.  Although, there is still so much I need to learn, without Peter I would not know where to start.  Many joint projects, lot’s of stimulating discourses, great meals.
