About me

LBNair_PhotobbHello there, This is Lakshmi. Welcome to my personal website! I am an Assistant Professor (Senior) at the Methodology and Statistics Department of Utrecht University, The Netherlands. My work explores the rigor, transparency, and impact of research methods (qualitative, specifically) in management.

My articles on methodological sophistication of research methods have been published in journals (Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Business Research, Qualitative Research in Psychology, Scientometrics, Journal of Management Inquiry, Forum Qualitative Sozialforschung), proceedings (Academy of Management Proceedings) as well as other publications (Sage Research Methods Cases, Sage Business Cases). I have also authored a book and various book chapters which have been published by Financial Times Press and ACPI Publishers.

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