  • Dr. Matusik's current research focuses on strategic management specifically as it applies to entrepreneurial and knowledge intensive firms, such as venture capital firms. For example, she had looked at topics such as how markets value innovation activities of firms, what accounts for variation in profitability levels of entrepreneurial firms, and how the diversification of a venture capital firm (i.e., the different industries it invests in) affects the performance of the venture capital firm. Her work has been published in top international academic journals such as Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Journal, and Academy of Management Review and is widely cited in the management field.
