Eric’s is Associate Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship at the Indiana University Bloomington.

His research has a central theme around the notion of ‘strategic paradoxes’, studying organizations that face difficult challenges, competing demands from multiple stakeholders, and important tradeoffs. In particular, Eric addresses strategic paradoxes in the context of social enterprises as well as in the areas of technological advances and cultural innovations. His goal is to help advance our understandings of how organizations wrestle with various tensions and succeed in converting tradeoffs into synergies.
