Research Summary

His research focuses on explaining the multifaceted roles of digital technologies in making business environments more turbulent and at the same time enabling organizations to successfully cope with environmental turbulence.

Further, his research suggests how digital technologies such as business intelligence & analytics and communication & collaboration technologies enable organizations to successfully sense and respond to business opportunities and threats in a timely manner and sustain competitive advantage.

Using multiple theoretical and methodological approaches (e.g., fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA), multilevel modeling, and structural equation modeling), his research systemically investigates the holistic aspects of digital phenomena such as big data and digital ecosystems and the multifaceted roles of digital technologies in the complex socio-technical systems.
