I am a Senior Research Associate at the University of Hamburg, Germany, and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Sustainability Management (CSM) and Copenhagen Business School (CBS). Most of my research deals with corporate sustainability, business models for sustainability, and values-based innovation. Since 2013, I am facilitating the research hub www.SustainableBusinessModel.org.
