Research Interests

My research interests are at the intersection of IS and strategy, including a variety of topics related to business analytics, digital innovation, technological decision, and value creation. I am particularly interested in the strategic issues in firms’ use of digital technologies for innovation, and how the resultant innovation transforms business and creates value. I am also interested in firms’ analytical capabilities and business models that leverage big data to inform strategic decisions, and the complexity of technological choices in an information-rich, turbulent environment.

I use and integrate interdisciplinary theories in research, including but are not limited to behavioral theory of the firm, resource-based view, resource dependence theory, agency theory, institutional theory, and complex adaptive systems. I am particularly experienced with computational and empirical research on IS strategy, drawing on building blocks such as bounded rationality, performance feedback, search for innovation, adaptive aspiration, and organizational learning.

Methodological Expertise

I am a quantitative researcher with expertise primarily in econometrics and simulation methods. I also use survey methods and field experiments in my research. In particular, I am open to and welcome novel research methods. I am not well versed, however, with qualitative research.
