Personal profile

Research interests

My research orientation departs from the notion that the economic and social foundations of growth, renewal and competitiveness stem from effective decision-making and equitable relations both within and between the private and public sectors of society. I am guided by my strong interest in understanding what drives innovation and socio-technological change, as well as the question of what the outcomes of innovation are for firms, their spatial-industrial environments, and society at large.

As such, my work and research interests lie at the intersection of Strategic Management and Public Policy in the context of innovation and entrepreneurship.

As a strategy scholar, I use management and organization theory to develop and empirically test variance theories with help of statistical inference using econometric and psychometric analysis techniques such as multiple regression modeling, survival analysis, matching (e.g. coarsened exact matching), difference-in-differences analysis, and latent variable-/structural equation modeling.
