Computation and biology have had a profound impact on my development as a management science scholar. Drawing inspiration from organization/strategy, complex systems, and marketing, my research focuses on innovation contagion and collective adaptation. My investigations particularly revolve around using computational tools to elucidate their interactions – novelties in science, technology, language, and culture/cultural products – how they diffuse and act as catalysts for organizational and market change.
I recognize the parallels between adaptation and competition in the organizational world and the principles found in biology and ecology. One crucial insight that biology has imparted upon me is the understanding that a group's potential surpasses the mere sum of its individual components. Complex, interdependent dynamics in online and real-world collectives that give rise to 'emergent' behaviors are of broad interest to me.
