ABOUT ME

I am a Strategy and Business Analytics Professor at Bocconi who completed her PhD in Management from INSEAD. I come from Singapore and was formerly a Management Consultant at Accenture where I worked on Strategy and IT projects in emerging markets.

I am passionate about making a difference with data, whether this relates to developing a more accurate view of the world, predicting the future or creating solutions to improve efficiency.

 

I have spent more than 10 years working with data to produce business insights. In addition to heavily leveraging statistics and social network analysis, I also use Machine Learning techniques in my work. In the last few years, I consulted for several companies and deeply enjoy using my data skills to drive business results.

Data Projects

Data Science and Research

Below are a collection of projects where I leverage Data Visualization, Data Analytics, Statistics and Machine Learning. 

Some of these projects pertain to assessing and mitigating risk. They examine the predictors of events such as scandals, organizational failures and misconduct, how they spread, and their consequences on companies and their communities. 

RESEARCH

Summary

OVERVIEW

I am broadly interested in how social connections between corporations and their communities affect organizational outcomes related to legitimacy loss. My curiosity in this area of research was sparked from my work on the diffusion of bank runs which culminated in a publication in the American Sociological Review. This paper highlights the power of perception and underscores how corporations lack control over whether their communities lose trust and withdraw their support.

Corporations interact with their communities through webs of personal and organizational connections and I am keen to discover how non-commerce related interactions affect firm behavior.  I currently examine these topics using two unique datasets compiled through an extensive data collection effort:

  • Board connections between Fortune 500 corporations and nonprofit organizations

  • Tweets by Fortune 500 corporations


Using this data, I discern how the corporate elite's relationship with nonprofit organizations affect firms' likelihood of engaging in deviance and the factors that prompt corporations to enact potentially risky behavior by participating in online activism.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

  • Board composition

  • Corporate governance

  • Impression management and scandal consequences

  • Corporate philanthropy and networks

TEACHING

Teaching is a meaningful and important component of my vocation. I aspire to help my students learn, realize their potential, and approach the world as thoughtful and effective human beings. My teaching philosophy revolves around cultivating an environment where students are energized and feel safe to engage with the course material, think about its broader consequences for society and go beyond the course content. I strive to make my approach as individualized as possible by getting to know my students and their interests, and by deploying a combination of teaching approaches and learning tools to suit different learning styles.
