About me

Hello there, This is Lakshmi. Welcome to my personal website! I am an Assistant Professor (Research) at Department of Business and Management, LUISS Guido Carli University (Rome, Italy).

Before joining LUISS, I was an Assistant Professor (Senior) at Utrecht University, The Netherlands (2016-2020) and a PhD candidate at Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland (2012-2016). My work mainly explores the rigor, transparency, ethics, and impact of qualitative organizational and managerial research. My other research interests include business and organizational ethics.  

My articles have been published in various academic journals (Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Research, Journal of Management Inquiry, Research Synthesis Methods, Scientometrics, M@n@gement, Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management, to name a few) as well as other academic outlets (Sage Research Methods Cases, Sage Business Cases, Academy of Management Proceedings etc.). I have also authored a book and various book chapters which have been published by Financial Times Press and Academic Publishing.

For my work, I have won several awards and honors (Academy of Management Best Paper Award, British Academy of Management Best Paper Awards, Global Innovation and Knowledge Academy Legateship, ISS Emerging Scholar Award, ECRM Teaching Research Methodology Excellence Awards and so on). On this website, I share more about my research, writing, and other academic activities. You can also find me on linkedin and twitter.
