So… What are your research interests right now? Through my work, I investigate the organizational processes and individual incentives of economic actors that build new technological industries and scientific fields. In some sense, my research interest is in understanding the emergence of other economic actors' research interest - "How do companies and individuals choose their area of research/innovation?" "When and why do companies and individuals become influenced by their local ...

As part of our profiles of TIM people, let us introduce Henning Piezunka of INSEAD which is sort of near Paris, France. Henning, you recently joined the TIM Executive Committee as an At Large member, so… What are your research interests right now? My research agenda includes three distinct but related streams: crowd-sourcing, collaboration, and competition. My research on crowd-sourcing examines how firms attract voluntary contributors yet often fail to learn from their contributions. My research on collaboration examines how the evolution of dyadic collaborations depends on structural context. My research on competition examines how actors become ...

As part of our profiles of TIM people, let us introduce Sourobh Ghosh of Harvard Business School, which is in the United States. Sourobh, you recently won a TIM award at the 2020 virtual conference. Congratulations! So… What are your research interests right now? I study how firms use inexpensive experiments to drive innovation and form strategy. While the phenomenon of firms using experiments isn’t necessarily new, what’s changed is that the cost to firms to design and run business experiments has become relatively cheap. With recent advances in information technology, experimentation is now scalable to test decisions of firm-wide consequence, changing ...

Congratulations! So… What are your research interests right now? I am interested in how firms react to innovation policy and how in turn they shape it through corporate political actions. My work is informed by innovation research on the rate and direction of innovation that often finds a heterogeneous impact of innovation policies.
