Born and raised in “Kransterdam”, I made it to a professor at the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics & Business. My broad research areas are business strategy and management accounting with a recent focus on corporate climate change mitigation and open science. I publish my scientific discoveries in premier international journals and have high impact in the field. My research excellence is also legitimized by numerous excellence awards, such as the Highly Cited Web of Science Award, the Australia Award, the Prešeren Award, the Bank of Slovenia Award, the Krka Award, the Trimo Award & the SEB Best Paper of the year award. I endeavour strongly to transfer knowledge and skills directly into business practice.
