Research

Aron Lindberg studies digital innovation, in particular as it is mediated by crowds (e.g., open source, wikis, virtual worlds) and algorithms (e.g., semiconductor chip design, virtual world design). He often utilizes digital trace data and combines qualitative and computational methods geared towards theory development.
