I am an Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School. My research and teaching interests focus on the generation of new ideas and their commercialization through various channels, especially entrepreneurship.
In particular, I study the “division of innovative labor” in the economy. At the level of individuals, I examine the relationship between collaboration and creativity and gender’s influence on project choice. At the level of organizations, I analyze how different types of organizations (e.g., universities, start-ups, more established firms) complement one another. To do so, I use simultaneous discoveries in order to conduct the first “twin studies of new knowledge.”
My dissertation was awarded the 1st place in MIT Sloan Doctoral Research Forum. It also received the MIT Energy Fellowship, the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship, the J. Robert Beyster Fellowship and an NSF SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant.
