Associate Director of Research on Entrepreneurship and Society - Graduate School of Business, Stanford University
My research focuses on the influence of institutional change on entrepreneurship, what drives institutional change, and the effect of those changes on the types of ventures that are founded and their performance. I also build on theories of institutions to discern how entrepreneurship is transforming society. Before my academic career, I spent 10 years in the semiconductor industry before I founded and ran a successful company in Tokyo. I make use of those experiences to inform my scholarship. Since earning my Ph.D. in 2014, I have published in Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, Strategy Science, and others. My academic work has won numerous awards from the Academy of Management, Responsible Research in Management, the Western Academy of Management, among others. I am on the editorial board of Organization Science, and the research committee of the OMT division of AOM. My articles have also appeared in academic books by the Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum and Springer Publications.
