I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in the Strategy and Entrepreneurship Department at the UCL School of Management. I expect to complete my doctoral degree by July 2020.
My research interests lie at the intersection of strategy and machine learning; how big data, machine learning, and dependent technologies contribute to differences in firm performance. In my dissertation, I investigate this question from different perspectives: I investigate big data and machine learning both as (a) a theoretical phenomenon that is changing organizations and (b) as a methodological tool that can advance research and practice. In my dissertation projects, I focus on social media as an application domain, where big data and machine learning are core to this domain. I apply different machine learning techniques to big data from social media to study (a) how social media influences organizational leader communications and strategic decisions and (b) how social media as an input to prediction algorithms can help to analyze strategic decisions, such as M&As.
