 Profile

Christina's research examines entrepreneurial strategies in platform ecosystems through a behavioral lens. In particular, she studies the impact of entrepreneurial actions and interactions with external actors on value creation and firm growth. She is enthusiastic about inductive, theory building studies using qualitative data as well as content analysis and text mining techniques. Her work is inspired by peer-to-peer platforms in the sharing economy and the challenges that platform owners face in governing the heterogeneity of human behavior. Her dissertation on this topic was a finalist for the 2017 Technology and Innovation Management dissertation award in the Academy of Management. She has published in the Academy of Management Discoveries, and frequently presents her research at premier academic conferences such as the Academy of Management, and the Strategic Management Society.
