Tatjana is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Strategy & Entrepreneurship. Her research focuses on incumbent firms’ strategic responses to competence-destroying technological discontinuities, looking at how established commercial banks in Europe adapt to the emergence of financial technology (FinTech). Her research seeks to quantitatively clarify the timing, intensity, and mode of FinTech adoption by theorizing both the benefits and constraints imposed by organizational legitimacy, as well as the engagement of external audiences (e.g., peer banks, analysts, and the public) in the process of collective acceptance of disruptive technologies.
Tatjana has international work experience as an investment fund auditor. She holds two Master of Science degrees (Strategic Management and Finance & Investments) from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.
