Prof. Dr. Jens Foerderer

Bio: I am an Assistant Professor (W2ttW3) of Innovation and Digitalization at TUM School of Management, Campus Heilbronn, Technical University of Munich.

I received my PhD (Dr. rer. pol), M.Sc., and B. Sc. from the Business School, University of Mannheim, Germany.

I study digital platforms (e.g., iOS, Android, Uber, AirBnB), especially to support firms’ decision-making regarding platform and ecosystem management. I do empirical, mostly econometric research focused on causal inference.

My research is accepted or published in Management Science, Information Systems Research, Information Systems Journal, among others. I have reviewed for Management Science, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, Strategic Management Journal, and various other scientific journals, institutions, and conferences. I held scholarships of the German National Science Foundation (DFG), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Federation of German Industries (BDI).

I teach courses on Digital Platforms, Digital Transformation, Technology and Innovation Management, as well as courses on Analytics (SQL, R, Python etc.).

My blog provides tutorials for researchers and data scientists who seek to use Python for data collection and preprocessing.
