Dr. Ellen Nathues works as Assistant Professor of Organization, Collaboration & Communication at University of Twente. She is also the initiator of ‘The CCO Data Collective’ (an online format that brings together scholars interested in communicative constitution and performativity theories to jointly analyze data) and an affiliated member of the Leuphana Organization Studies (LOST) research group. Her research broadly focuses on processes of organization and communication, particularly in pluralistic, open, and/or temporary contexts such as interorganizational collaboration or learning communities. More specifically, she is interested in questions of multivoicedness, agency, materiality, and multimodality. Her work is mainly of ethnographic, qualitative nature, and she also has a strong interest in methodological work. So far, her research has been published in Organization Studies, Strategic Organization, and Small Group Research, as well as in edited handbooks. She has received various awards for her work, including Top Papers at EGOS' sub-themes (European Group of Organization Studies) and Top Papers at the Organizational Communication division of the International Association of Communication.
Before starting as Assistant Professor at Twente, Ellen worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Leuphana University of Lüneburg. She defended her PhD at University of Twente, Cum Laude. She holds a Master's degree in Communication Studies (Cum Laude) and a Bachelor's degree in International Business and Management (Cum Laude).
