I am an Assistant professor in Organisation Studies at Warwick Business School since September, 2019. Previously I worked at Lancaster University Management School as a lecturer, and as guest research associate in University of Kyoto in Japan.

My research uses institutional theories (of legitimation, status, and institutionalization) and theories of temporality (role of history and tradition, and how past is connected to the future) to examine organization and field level dynamics. My research spans three main areas. First, my research examines how temporal processes and practices affect organizational dynamics. Second, my research investigates the survival and revival of skill-based craft sector in Japan and in the UK. Finally, I am interested in understanding how marginalized actors such as indigenous people and refugees manage to maintain their cultural traditions.

My work has received best paper awards and is published in leading peer-reviewed journals. I am a member of the Academy of Management and the European Group of Organization Studies and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK.
