Friday, November 12th, 2010
11:00 am—12:30 pm
David Obstfeld joined New York University Stern School of Business faculty in September 2009. Prior to joining NYU Stern, he was on the faculty of the University of California, Irvine’s Merage School of Business.
Professor Obstfeld’s research examines how the knowledge-intensive, network-based social processes that result in organizational change and innovation unfold at the local and firm levels. Currently, his interests focus on how the interaction of social network-based linking activity, knowledge articulation, creative projects and collective action influence entrepreneurship, innovation and firm strategy. With support from the National Science Foundation, he is collecting data on brokerage, social networks and knowledge-based innovation.
Professor Obstfeld received his A.B. from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. Prior to his academic career, he served as director of training and development at The Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae).
