My main research interest revolves around the concept of negative social evaluations (stigma, disapproval) at the organizational, individual and practice level, and their antecedents (misconduct, norm violation). It builds on research in various fields, including mass communication and sociology.

- Why do some organizations and individuals suffer from being negatively perceived, while some don’t?

How do publicly attacked practices survive external pressures?

How do audiences affect each others?
