Kathrin is an Assistant Professor (tenure track) at the House of Innovation at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). She is an economist by training, holding a PhD in Innovation and Technology Management from the University of Graz.
Prior to joining SSE, she worked as an Assistant Professor at WU Vienna University of Economics and Business and has been a visiting scholar at Columbia Business School/NYC (2018) and the Laboratory of Innovation Science at Harvard (2019). Furthermore, she has been appointed a SCANCOR Visiting Scholar to Stanford in spring 2022.
Her research interest lies in the intersection of the fields of innovation, technology, and strategy. In this vein, she is driven by the question of how to enable organizations to acquire, assess, and implement external knowledge to create innovation. Ongoing work investigates this by focusing on knowledge management and the subsequent organizational learning, specifically within the context of crowds, contests, and communities.
