Research Overview

In the broadest sense my research interests revolve around the documentation of science. To this end, I seek to understand not just the means by which science is documented, but also the purpose for this documentation. In a more narrow sense, consistent with the work of Richard Whitley, I believe that the documentation of science may be manifested differently and for different purposes within different types of institutions and environments.Given this, I am specifically interested in its documentation within industry, especially as the publication of research findings appears counter to the goals of such an institution. My current research is thus aimed at understanding both means my which industry documents it scientific activity and the purpose for such documentation.

I have recently assessed the influence of top management team education on a firm's participation in public science. While these results were positive, I believe there could also be more strategic purposes for such documentation. My current research in progress seeks to identify different means by which industry publishes research findings. The future direction of this research is to align documentation means with documentation purpose through both a thorough understanding of scientific documentation within industry and the potential strategic benefits to a firm of publishing research findings.
