research overview

  • My research examines how firms organize their internal investments and external relationships to explore and respond to opportunities in the technological, geographic, and digital spaces. I study these questions at the confluence of strategy, innovation, and globalization, focusing on interorganizational relationships, multinational firms, patents & IPRs, and digital platforms.
