    Other things are sort of hanging off that big endeavour.

    • Visit to the University of Oslo, June 2023. The plan is to work with my co-authors on our paper on multi-sided platforms.

    • Academy of Management Annual General Meeting (AoM), 4th–8th August 2023 in Boston. This will be my first time at AoM. Normally, it would clash with my teaching obligations, but this year, as I'm on Research and Study leave …
