I am a researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Vienna. My research field is Innovation Management. More specifically I have been focused on two research areas: the growing importance of non-technical innovations, especially business model innovation, and the democratization of the innovation process, i.e. how users can be leveraged and managed as external sources of innovation. I believe that the intersection of these two areas provides fruitful ground for research. I’ve done some work in the field of sound art, mobile music, and reactive music (with RjDj). I have also worked in the field of conceptual modeling in business informatics at the University of Vienna. I received a master’s degree in International Business Administration at the University of Vienna and a master’s degree in Digital Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
