I am a PhD Candidate in Management at Michigan State University, Eli Broad College of Business. As a student of organizational theory, I am mesmerized by “Why are there so many kinds of organizations?” and “What makes organizations so similar?” in particular, the roles of values and legitimacy transforming organizations. The expansion of finance in the economy, reified in private equity and venture capital, has held my empirical attention. More recently, the growth of blockchains, either as a technology or as an asset class, encourages me to delve into the process of structuration. Taken together, my research enterprise aims to illuminate the mechanisms of financialization and how organizations gravitate towards the financial imperative.
