Ph.D. candidate at Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon
University. My research focuses on the intersection of technology,
economics, and organization behavior and theory.
Research Interest: Platform design and strategy, Collaborative and open innovation, Crowdsourcing, Technology adoption and usage, Online exchanges, E-commerce, Social computing.
My ongoing research can be classified into two main research streams.
Research Stream 1: Multi-sided networks.
Multi-sided networks are platforms that connect distinct but inter-dependent types of users (e.g. buyers and suppliers).
In this stream of research, I examine social dynamics that occurs on platforms such as online exchanges.
One project looks at buyer-supplier relationships in global Business-to-Business (B2B) exchanges.
Another project studies drivers of multi-homing users’ preference of exchange networks.
Research Stream 2: Crowdsourcing and open innovation.
In this stream of research, I focus on how the structure of the crowd impacts innovations.
A current project looks at contributions and limitations of the crowd in new product developments.
I have presented my research at Academy of Management Annual Meeting (AOM),
INFORMS' Conference on Information Systems and Technology (CIST),
and Symposium on Statistical Challenges in Electronic Commerce Research (SCECR).
My paper on buyer-supplier relationships in B2B exchanges was awarded Best Paper Award (1st-runner up) in Academy of Management Annual Meeting
2009 (OCIS Division).
