Bio: I am an Assistant Professor (Habilitand) of Information Systems at the Business School, University of Mannheim, Germany.

I study how firms can harness IT for innovation, foremost through platform ecosystems, open-sourcing, and communities. I do empirical, mostly econometric research. I share best practices on data analysis in my blog.

My research is published in Information Systems Research,Information Systems Journal, among others. I regularly review for 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).
