specialization

A number of core themes in my research are:

  • Online communities
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Collaboration
  • Social networks
  • Multidisciplinary research

research

In my research, I am interested in knowledge sharing and collaboration in social networks, and specifically in an online environment. Recently, I have develop projects where I investigated a number of questions that are related to these core themes: how do entrepreneurs share knowledge and participate in online communities; which roles do people adopt in online communities; how can we explain that online communities function despite their voluntary character; how do people in knowledge-intensive teams share knowledge in practice (in the kitchens of two Michelin-starred restaurants!); how can organizations use social media to their advantage; and how do social networks influence knowledge sharing and innovation.
