Corinna Frey is an Assistant Professor at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. She uses Organization Theory and Management thinking to better understand organization's responses to refugee crises and other grand challenges of our times.

She completed her PhD at the University in Cambridge in 2018 with a dissertation on "Organizing in times of global displacement and refugee crises".

Prior to her PhD, Corinna worked as a Data Management Specialist for UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency, as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt and as Research Assistant at the Goethe-University Frankfurt.

Corinna's motivation in pursuing research closely aligns with her interests in real world impact. She regularly feeds back research insights to international humanitarian organisations, including the United Nations Refugee Agency, Save the Children or UNICEF, allowing them to reflect on their knowledge and accountability practices when responding to international refugee crises.
