Eva Schlindwein is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation, whose research interests include the application of organisation and management theories to diverse challenges for corporations, public and non-profit organisations.

Her main focus in her work at the centre will be on the challenge for non-profit organisations to build and maintain favourable reputations while scaling up in size and scope. This includes applying an institutional work perspective in a case study on a non-profit organisation that experiences significant growth due to the refugee crisis in Germany. 

Eva is also working with Tom Lawrence, Professor of Strategic Management at Saïd Business School, and collaboration partners from the Vienna University of Economics and Business on a project that examines the process of criminalisation of cannabis in the US at the beginning of the 20th century. 

Eva holds a master’s degree in Business Administration and a PhD in Organisation and Management Theory from the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena. After obtaining her PhD in 2016, she worked as a researcher and lecturer, teaching strategic international management, research methods, and various business communication courses to undergraduate and graduate students.

Since 2012, Eva has also been working with a non-profit in Germany engaged with children and young adults with migrant backgrounds.
