'Few technological advances have as many wide-reaching societal – and thus economic – implications as digitalisation. Irrespective of whether we see the influence of digitalisation as an opportunity or a threat, with its fake news, filter bubbles, artificial intelligence, human enhancement and all the other phenomena it engenders: the one thing we cannot do is to ignore it and carry on as before. My research focusses on the following lines of enquiry: How do the influences of top executives’ personality traits on organisational behaviour change due to digitalisation? What are the fundamentally new challenges for communication of high-level executives that arise due to digitalisation? In doing so, I profit from the opportunity to work on this area of study with a proven team of colleagues of international standing and with an interdisciplinary mindset.'
