Assistant Professor of Management
After receiving my Ph.D. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, I joined the Management faculty at West Chester University last August. I am also a Senior Fellow of the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School, and I serve as Media Director for the Society for Business Ethics.
My main research interests are in business & society, nonmarket strategy, and business ethics. My most recent research focuses on corporate social responsibility as well as organizational secrecy.
