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 theory, new organizational forms (such as platform organizations and online community-based organizations), open innovation, open strategy, organization design, and practice theory.
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, and regional policy implementation contexts (clusters).
Methodologically, I primarily use qualitative research methods, especially content analysis, discourse analysis, interviews, netnography, participant observations, and visual analysis.
