“So, what are you studying?”



  • This stream of research aims to explore how more decentralized forms of organizing are/ will be different from existing forms of organizing when it comes to venture creation, organizational learning, and innovation.
  • As there’s a lack of consensus about the definitions of decentralized organizations, my research covers a range of decentralized organizations: Decentralized organizations, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), Decentralized Autonomous Corporations/Companies (DACs).
  • Some relevant questions:
    • How blockchain technology enables new forms of organizing that are decentralized(e.g. DAOs) ?
    • What drives the emergence and development of blockchain ecosystems?
    • What are the implications for management research (e.g., boundaries of organizations, unmediated actors, crowdsourcing)?

Innovation and creativity in culinary arts

  • This stream of research aims to explore how the new styles/categories of cuisine emerge and evolve through the networks of elite restaurants and chefs.
  • These elite restaurants and chefs are consistently producing innovative and creative dishes and beverages to stay in the competition and earn prestige (i.e., Michelin stars).
