Garima Sharma is an Assistant Professor at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. She holds a PhD from Case Western Reserve University, MBA from Symbiosis Center for Human Resource Development, Pune, India, and Bachelor’s in Engineering from SGISTS, Indore, India. Prior to her appointment at the Andrew Young School, she was an Assistant Professor at the Anderson School of Management, University of New Mexico, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at Ivey Business School, Ontario, Canada.
Garima studies how business can solve the social and environmental problems we face today. Business goals are often short term and narrowly defined, but addressing social and environmental problems requires long-term thinking, interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative ways of organizing. Her research focuses on how business and its decision makers successfully manage these tensions. She also studies research impact and how academics and practitioners can collaborate to generate innovative solutions for social and environmental issues.
Her research has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, Organization Studies, Journal of Business Ethics and Journal of Applied Behavioral Science. Over the years, she has received several grants to support her research including MITACS and TalentEdge Fellowship, two of the most competitive grants offered for postdoctoral work by the Ontario Government.
