Gino Cattani is currently Associate Professor of Strategy and Organization Theory at the Stern School of Business (New York University). He received a PhD in Management from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. His research spans two main areas of investigation. The first stream deals with the question of how firms can sustain their competitive advantage in the face of technological change. His work analyzes this question of intentionality by looking at how that knowledge is leveraged in a different application domain (e.g., a new market or industry) from that in which it originally accumulated. The second stream examines the question of how novelty btains recognition and legitimacy when multiple audiences - using different evaluation criteria - evaluate such novelty. His research also explores how candidates’ attributes, as captured by their structural position in a given field, influence their ability to appeal to such audiences. His research has been published in American Sociological Review, Organization Science, Administrative Science Quarterly, Strategic Management Journal, Strategy Science, Academy of Management Journal, Research Policy and Industrial and Corporate Change. He is currently Deputy Senior Editor at Organization Science, Associate Editor at Management Science and Industrial and Corporate Change, and Editor of Advances in Strategic Management.
