Andreas researches the ontological significance of accounting practices, exploring situated enactments of representational links between numbers and organizational realities. His PhD is based on praxiographic fieldwork in a theatre company, studying tensions between arts performance and organizational performance in managerial practices. A key concern in his research refers to how ontological tensions (e.g. singularity-multiplicity, stability-fluidity) are organized.

 

Andreas has previously been a visiting research student at London School of Economics & Political Science (2015) and at Copenhagen Business School (2013). His paper ‘Framing numbers at a distance: Intangible performance reporting in a theatre’ was awarded ‘Best paper award’ at the EIASM 2011 Workshop on Intangibles and also received the 2012 ‘Emerald outstanding paper award’.
