I do research at the intersection of entrepreneurship and strategic management with a focus on strategy evolution in the context of contemporary industries that are migrating toward more fluid and project-based production.
My current work tries to answer two main research questions: 1) why and how do organizations and individuals change their strategic behaviour, and 2) what is the impact of change on the performance of individuals and organizations.
My work is mainly driven by theoretical tensions in the organizational learning and categorization literatures, while also borrowing concepts from the fields of sociology and marketing. My empirical approach primarily involves econometric studies of naturally occurring data to investigate patterns of change and performance as well as the drivers of innovation and entrepreneurship. I have also employed qualitative analyses of historical case studies to explain inflection points in the process of strategy evolution and how entrepreneurial firms transition from exploration to exploitation.
I am currently working on multiple projects at different stages of development and with a focus on industries ranging from regenerative medicine to semiconductors and entertainment.
