Peter Drucker, a highly influential business thinker, once said that “the organization is, above, all social”. My teaching philosophy is grounded in this simple and yet complex conclusion. As an organizational researcher specializing in organizational behavior, I focus on understanding antecedents and consequences of behaviour within organizations by studying the linkages between organizational practices, structures and norms, group-level processes, and individual attitudes and behavior.
I use a variety of teaching techniques such as case studies and business simulations, group decision exercises, and role play to enable experiential learning to practice application of theoretical concepts and knowledge to organizational problems.
I have gained research and teaching experience at different Universities around the world including the University of Konstanz, the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany, the University of Queensland (Australia), the ETH Zurich (Switzerland), and New York University (USA).
I have also developed and implemented crises resource management trainings within hospitals including the University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland and the Bellevue Hospital in New York City (USA) which involved high-fidelity medical simulations.
Currently, I teach the course “Leadership and Organization” in the Marketing & Management class. You can find my complete 3-semester teaching curriculum here.
