My research focuses on collaborative innovation and collaborative organization. Specifically, I am interested in how organizations create, participate in, and respond to collaborative structures and practices that enable them to innovate and organize in a sustainable way.
Theoretically, my interests lie at the intersection of innovation studies and organization theory, drawing upon and contributing to research on ecosystems, institutional processes, new organizational forms (such as algorithm-based organizations, online community-based organizations, platform organizations, and transparent/open organizations), organization design, and social practices.
Empirically, I study contexts that are at the forefront of the digital transformation such as digital manufacturing (Industry 4.0), gig economy, platform economy, and sharing economy as well as infrastructure contexts such as energy, green technology (clean technology), and regional policy implementation contexts (clusters).
Methodologically, I primarily use qualitative research methods such as discourse analysis, interviews, hermeneutics, netnography, participant observation, qualitative content analysis, and visual analysis.
