research interests revolve around how Post-truth's polarization and fragmentation
of opinions influence organizational life at large. This makes his research
highly interdisciplinary, involving sociological - such as public opinion,

organizational identity, corporate communication, and stakeholder theory. He
starts from social constructivism as foundational theory and mainly adopts a
critical discourse analysis approach in his work.
