I am an Associate Professor at the Department for Management Control and Strategic Management at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. My research mainly applies simulation-based research approaches (in particular agent-based simulation) to questions in the context of management science and the interconnection between organizational research and complex systems. My most recent work is concerned with rendering neoclassical models into (multi-agent) model, the emergence of management controls, coalitions, and further behavioral control mechanisms, organizational and social learning, and bottom-up organizational design. I am also a core faculty member of the research cluster of Self-Organizing Systems.
I studied at the University of Klagenfurt, where I received my doctoral degree in Social Sciences and Economics in 2012 with distinction. I was granted venia docendi in the field of Business Economics from University of Klagenfurt in 2018. In 2021, I was awarded the Advancement Award in the category Humanities and Social Sciences (as part of the Cultural Prices) by the government of Carinthia.
