I am quite comfortable working with a wide range of methodologies and people from various functional areas. For example, I have employed a variety of methodologies including simulations, archival data analysis, empirical surveys, case studies and typologies. In addition, many of my co-authors have had specialties in environmental sciences, biology and history. Correspondingly my publications have also appeared in a variety of outlets including cross-disciplinary, management and science related journals. Below are some publications classified by the methodology employed.
