It involves platformization of supply chains, and collaborative innovation management for complex digital ecosystems. Also, I study distributed ledger technologies and their implications across different industries.

My colleagues and I currently work on projects in algorithmic evolution of the firm, digital platforms for businesses, industrial platform governance, multi-actor value creation in industrial ecosystems, and blockchain technology.
