I broadly study Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Responsible AI. My overarching research question: How do firms develop and deploy emerging technologies (e.g., AI) in a socially beneficial manner (e.g., responsible AI) and maintain competitive advantage? In particular, how do firms balance the trade-off between knowledge spillover and external resource acquisition (e.g., human capital, capital)?
Previously, I worked as a Software Engineer for Samsung R&D Lab in Bangladesh, India, and South Korea. My research is partly informed by experiences at such corporate labs.
I have published in Science, have an R&R from SMJ, and my working papers have been recognized at multiple conferences such as Best PhD Paper Prize (nominated, SMS), Max Boisot Award (finalist, EGOS), Best Paper in Strategy (won, AMCIS), Honorable Mention (won, ASAC), Best Paper Award (finalist, Israel Strategy Conference) among others.
Finally, my research has also received media coverage from outlets like Financial Times, VentureBeat, Scientific American, Nature Medicine, Le Monde, Axios, Marginal Revolution, State of the AI. Three prestigious AI reports cited my work: The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence and Stanford AI Index (2021), National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (2022).
