Hello all! I'm Brendon Cummiskey and I'm going into the 4th year of my PhD program at Washington University in St. Louis. I'm part of our OB Department and my main research interests are creativity and innovation, particularly with the ways we identify problems to solve and how we generate solutions.
I'm excited about the creation of this forum and think it will provide some much improved accessibility and resources. Let's hope it leads to some fruitful discussions and helpful connections!
