Research Interests

Empirically, my research takes point of departure in the financial crisis marking the early decades of the 21st century. In specific, I investigate how members of the financial industry experience and handle the crisis.

Methodologically, my research relies on an inductive approach which is based on qualitative analysis of rich data. In specific, I conduct un-structured to semi-structured interviews with members of the financial industry who narrate how they experience and handle the crisis.

Theoretically, my research draws on an interpretive paradigm and centers around cognitive (sensemaking), emotional (feelings), and existential (identity) issues. In specific, I explore how members of the financial industry make sense, feel and identify during the crisis.
