About Me

I am an Assistant Professor with the Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship Department of the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. My primary research interest lies at the intersection of corporate and technology strategy, specifically in examining the impact of innovation and technological change on choices of firm scope, as well as the impact of these scope choices on subsequent innovation. My research has appeared or is forthcoming in Management Science, Organization Science, and the Strategic Management Journal. More details about my research agenda, as well as links to published papers, can be found on my Research page.

In addition to my academic career, I am also a published writer and poet. My poems and short stories have appeared in a number of literary journals, and a book of my short fiction, titled ├ętudes, was published in 2009. More information about my literary work can be found on my Creative Writing page.
