Dirk Lindebaum is a Senior Professor at Grenoble Ecole de Management and a Visiting Professor at the University of Alberta School of Business. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of Academy of Management Learning & Education, and beginning July 2023, will begin accepting manuscripts as editor-in-chief.
Dirk obtained his PhD from Manchester Business School and has been a member of AOM since 2010. He is currently part of the Organization and Management Theory and Critical Management Studies divisions. He is curious about “values” as meta-theme in his research, particularly in relation to theory building, learning, technology, and emotions at work. His work regularly appears in journals of international distinction, and he is the author of the book Emancipation Through Emotion Regulation at Work.
Despite his theoretical pursuits, the practical relevance of his research is regularly recognized in news outlets, such as the Financial Times, New York Times, BBC Radio 5 Live, Wirtschaftswoche, Daily Mail, Independent, and Bloomberg Businessweek. Additionally, he has published several practitioner-focused articles in MIT Sloan Management Review, one of which has been accepted into the Honor Roll of the Responsible Research in Business and Management network (RRBM), a distinction that his research serves the greater good.
