Two research projects that are central in the portfolio of his recent research activities. The first project concerns the effects of the categorical structure of organizational environments on the behavior of companies. The specific empirical setting of this research is patenting behavior in the global semiconductor industry. His co-authors and him are building a theory of how entry into technological patent classes is driven by a process of matching between characteristics of the entrants and characteristics of the patent classes. They are testing the theory using data made available by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The second project concerns the organization of a conference at Stanford University on models of organizational decision making. The conference celebrates the work of J.G. March, M.D. Cohen and J.P. Olsen, and will provide an opportunity to edit a volume that collects and organizes the contributions of prominent organization theorists interested in organizational decision-making and problem-solving processes.
