Michelle’s research centres on how individual and firm social capital affects entrepreneurship and innovation. She is currently investigating the implications of AI use for the value of social capital in decision making and knowledge creation.

She is exploring the role of gender and networks in entrepreneurship and career mobility, and the strategic human capital and career implications of employee participation in corporate social impact projects. Previously, she studied acquisitions of social capital – such as how firms use acquisitions of target firms to gain valuable inter-organisational relationships to customers, suppliers and other business partners in the advertising industry.

Her research has been published in top journals including Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Management Science and the Annual Review of Sociology.
