Priscilla Álamos-Concha is Assistant Professor of Qualitative Empirical Methodology at the Department of Business Administration of the Nijmegen School of Management. She joined Radboud University in 2020. Priscilla’s research interests lie at the intersection of social innovation, social change and democracy, and include complexity-based methods to assess the impact of social innovations in creating social change, such as Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), Process-Tracing (PT) and Comparative Historical Analysis (CHA).

Priscilla’s current research examines the intersection of institutional theory, stakeholder theory, and social movement theory, as a unified configurational theory to investigate the conditions fostering and impeding ‘social innovation’ carried out by MNCs to addres Grand Challenges. In addition, she is combining configurational theory with the study of causal mechanisms to increase the study impact as applied to a broader context.

During her career she has worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at NSM (Radboud University) and as PI - impact evaluation of ESF-WSE funded projects at the Antwerp Management School (AMS), Belgium. She earned her Ph.D. in Political and Social Sciences from the University of Louvain, Belgium.
