My research focuses on collaboration across cultural boundaries, with special attention to processes of knowledge production and knowledge sharing. Collaboration can take the form of (project) alliances, joint ventures or mergers/acquisitions. Cultural boundaries can be those between different countries, but also those between, e.g., client organizations and contractors, or between firms with a technical orientation and with a commercial orientation. Recent studies have looked at the airline industry, the construction industry, the software industry and the shipbuilding industry. My work has attracted over 1,300 ISI citations.
