  • I study virtual work arrangements such as (globally) distributed teams and flexible work. I am interested in exploring how virtual interactions influence team processes and outcomes. My dissertation focus on leadership in distributed teams, and how it can be shared over leaders, members and non-human capital (such as technology and process). Through my research, I constantly come across the importance of communication as well as organisational design, for the success of distributed teams.
