Visiting Associate Professor - Anderson School of Business, University of California, Los Angeles
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. This new stream of research is theorized in a series of papers in two Research on the Sociology of Organizations volumes on Entreprneueialism and Society.
Before my academic career, I spent ten years in the semiconductor industry and then founded and ran a successful company in Tokyo. Now, I make use of those experiences to inform my scholarship and teaching. 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, and the Western Academy of Management, among others. I am on the editorial board of Organization Science. My articles have also appeared in academic books by the Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum and Springer Publications.
