  • I am currently working my doctoral dissertation, which¬†focuses on external corporate social responsibility communication of beverage companies in the context of the global obesity epidemic. My research approach is qualitative and critical with a focus on discourse and discursive strategies the industry and its member companies use in constructing both their and other stakeholders' responsibility in the issue. In the papers to be included in the dissertation,¬†I approach the issue, for example, from the perspectives of organizational narcissism, institutional complexity and institutional logics as well as organizational paradoxes.

    In addition to doing research, I assist Mr. Esko Aho, Aalto University Executive in Residence, in running the course Business and Society taught at the Bachelor's level at the Business School.
