The professor's research explores both the positive and negative aspects of leadership. She tries to find out what motivates leaders to take responsibility and consider the long-term consequences of their actions. Additionally, she focuses on unethical leadership and the factors that drive leaders to cross ethical boundaries. Her analysis includes the influence of personality and the effects of cultural aspects, such as toxic work environments and diversity within organisations. To conduct her research, she applies field studies, experiments, and innovative data techniques. Her findings are published in leading scientific journals.


The ABS professor provides education in the field of leadership and group processes at the ABS. She teaches subjects like 'Inspirational Leadership' and 'Cases in Leadership'. Her interactive approach helps students develop knowledge and leadership skills, enhancing their communication abilities and increasing career opportunities.
