research strategy in highly innovative, dynamic modern industries. My work involves large econometric studies of naturally occurring data from industry, along with field experiments conducted with industry and government partners. I am particularly interested in how the efforts of large "systems" of diverse contributors/innovators can be best harnessed and productively governed by key central players such as owners of bottleneck facilities or supporting platforms. While I study a number of novel forms of organising and competing, I am most interested in deriving general insights that apply widely to questions of innovation, competition and organisation.
I hold degrees from MIT (Ph.D. Behavioral & Policy Sciences), University of Toronto (M.A. Economics), University of Waterloo (B.A.Sc. Engineering). Prior to a career in academic research and university teaching, I held positions in several organizations, including The Economist Group, Qualcomm, Braxton Associates, the Canadian Space Agency and Nikean (a startup).
