Office Address


My research generally covers innovation, strategy, and entrepreneurship. Specifically, my research is focused on two interrelated themes: 1. Knowledge and innovation in various types of organizations; 2. Innovation and patenting in China. In general, I study the intersection between strategy and innovation at different levels (firm, project, individual, and patent). I use econometric methods combined with computational techniques to study the antecedents, processes, and implications of organizations' strategic decisions by drawing from theories of knowledge and innovation.

Keywords: Knowledge and Innovation, Digitization, Data-Driven Management, Strategic Management
