I received my doctoral degree from NUS Business School, National University of Singapore in 2014. My PhD dissertation explored how firms reconfigure their alliance portfolios following a technological discontinuity. This study was supported by the Strategic Management Society’s (SMS) Strategy Research Foundation (SRF) Dissertation Scholarship. In 2015, I was named a finalist of the Best Dissertation Award by the Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) Division of the Academy of Management (AOM) in Vancouver, BC. In 2017, I received Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research.

After leaving the tiny but shiny island of Singapore, I joined Gabelli School of Business, Fordham University, in New York City, as an assistant professor of corporate strategy. I am also the associate director of the Global Healthcare Innovation Management Center (GHIMC) which is based at the Strategy and Statistics Area of the Gabelli School.
