Overview

I am a doctoral student, with interests in strategy and entrepreneurship. I am currently doing research with Rahul Kapoor, looking at R&D cooperation in the semiconductor industry. I am also interested models of cooperation and competition to create and capture value. Other early stage projects include an exploration of the impact of regulations extending parental insurance on state entrepreneurship rates and possibly the experimental manipulation of two-sided markets (idea pending, but I think it would be interesting).

If you are a student in a course I'm grading and need to reach me urgently, you can call my office number. It will forward to my cell phone after 12 seconds.

Courses

Previous

  • MGMT101 - Introduction To Management

    This course is an introduction to the critical management skills involved in planning, structuring, controlling and leading an organization. It provides a framework for understanding issues involved in both managing and being managed, and it will help you to be a more effective contributor to organizations that you join. We develop a "systems" view of organizations, which means that we examine organizations as part of a context, including but not limited to environment, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people and outputs. We consider how managerial decisions made in any one of these domains affect decisions in each of the others.
