Shiyuan (Eric) Liu is a Wallenberg Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Innovation Program (SCDI) at the Department of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology, Stockholm School of Economics. He obtained his Ph.D. from Warwick Business School, UK. Prior to that, he received his Bachelor's from the University of Nottingham and M.Sc. from the University of Warwick in the UK.
His research interests relate broadly to digital innovation, transformation, and entrepreneurship. His Ph.D. focused on digital enterprise scaling from a lens of platform identity projecting. More specifically, he examined how growing non-focal actors (i.e. complementors) navigate the interdependency dilemma with focal actors in platform ecosystems over time. He is open to and has applied both qualitative and computational approaches, such as process tracing, archival studies, text mining, and applied econometrics, to leverage unprecedented amounts and types of digital trace data in studying contemporary digital phenomena.
His research has appeared at major conferences such as the Academy of Management (AOM), the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), and the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS). He participated in the ICIS and AOM Doctoral Consortium in 2020. He also served as an editorial board member for the digital repository of the AIS special interest group on Digital Innovation, Transformation, and Entrepreneurship (SIGDITE).
