I am an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst's Isenberg School of Management. I study organizational growth dynamics, particularly in corporate strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on how managers and entrepreneurs facilitate or impede this process.

My research has been recognized with the Glueck Best Paper Award of the Academy of Management's Strategic Management Division. I have also been nominated for the Best Paper Award by both the Academy of Management's Managerial and Organizational Cognition Division and the International Corporate Governance Society. In 2022, I received an Outstanding Reviewer Award from the Academy of Management's Strategic Management Division.

I earned a PhD, an MS, and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business, and a B.Sc. in Economics from Obafemi Awolowo University. Prior to my graduate studies, I worked in securities at Goldman Sachs in London, United Kingdom, as an intern, and in real estate and equity research at ARM in Lagos, Nigeria.
