About

My name is Ali Aslan Gümüsay. I work within the fields of **Organization Theory**, **Entrepreneurship**, **Business Ethics** and **Leadership**, am Head of the Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Society Research Group at the Humboldt Institute for Internet & Society and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Hamburg. Currently, I am a Visiting Research Fellow at Judge Business School, Visiting Associate at Hughes Hall, and Visiting Scholar at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, University of Cambridge. Before, I was a DAAD PRIME Fellow, Lecturer at Magdalen College, and a DPhil Candidate at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. At the heart of my research are concerns around **Organizing in & for Society**. It is guided by four questions: 1. How do values and meaning shape organizations and how are they managed? 2. How do new forms of organizing impact and deal with societal Grand Challenges? 3. How can engaged, passionate, humble, relevant, and meaningful scholarship as well as soci(et)al complexity and diversity be ingrained in academic practices? 4. How do socio-technological transformations such as AI shape the Future of Work? My work has been published in journals such as *Academy of Management Journal*, *Academy of Management Perspectives*, *Business & Society*, *Innovation: Organization & Management*, *Journal of Business Ethics*, *Journal of Management Studies* and *Research Policy*.
