I am an associate professor of strategy & entrepreneurship and Sarah Graham Kenan Scholar at UNC's Kenen-Flagler Business School. I study how entrepreneurs and firms create and enter nascent industries. I seek to understand the entrepreneurial strategies that firms undertake during early industry stages and even prior to the first ever commercialization within an industry context. My research has been published in Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, Strategy Science, and Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal. I am honored that this research program has been recognized by awards from the Kauffman Foundation, Strategy Research Foundation, Academy of Management’s TIM Division, Industry Studies Association, and the Schulze Foundation. I teach core strategic management in full time and evening MBA programs.
