主要研究内容 Research Interests
Her research interests lie in the field oftechnological innovation, entrepreneurship, and business strategy. Innovation and technology commercialization increasingly become a team work where entrepreneurs, large firms, investors, and regulatory agencies all play a part. Yet, innovation is risky and idiosyncratic, and transactions and inter-firm collaborations for innovation are not free from market inefficiencies such as infromation asymmetry. Her recent works aim to shed a light on the role of the public sector in moderating the inefficiencies in the market for innovation and entrepreneurship. Specifically, she studies how market conditions shaping the collaborative ecoysystem around entrepreneurship affect the direction of entrepreneurial innovation and VC investment. She also studies the nature and formation of inter-firm partnership between startups and large firms in innvoative and creative industries and its policy implications.
