Dissertation project:

My dissertation investigates how alternative organizations such as cooperatives deal with changing market and societal conditions. This study zooms in to strategies pursued at the field level, such as federation. By "cooperating among cooperatives," organizations create second-order support infrastructure, which in turn shapes the organizational form of participating cooperatives and the relationships in the field.
