I joined the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies in October 2016 as a postdoctoral research fellow. I am working with Professor David Stark and Professor Sheen Levine on a research project supported by the European Research Council. For this project, we will design experimental settings to study the link between ethnic diversity and performance.
I completed my PhD at the University of Antwerp (Belgium). During my PhD research, I studied how multiple, diverse stakeholders collaborate in innovation networks to create value. I used a variety of qualitative and quantitative research methods to address the topic. I collected interview and survey data from one of the largest public-private partnerships in the life sciences. During the last year of my PhD, I went on a research exchange at the University of Texas at Dallas. Here I used experimental methods to study individual decision-making. To support my PhD research, I was awarded scholarships by the Research Foundation Flanders and Fulbright.
An important feature of my PhD research was to study how functional diversity influences performance in collaborations between different stakeholders. At the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, I will examine a different type of diversity, i.e., ethnic diversity, and its effect on performance.
