Jian Wang

Assistant Professor at the Science Based Business Program, Faculty of Science, Leiden University.  He studies science and innovation and in particular the interface between them, integrating various disciplinary perspectives, such as economics, sociology, management, and public policy.  His recent research focuses on novelty in science and innovation and its economic and social drivers, such as funding schemes and team and network structures.  Another research line focuses on the translation of science into innovation.  His research builds on big data analytics and advanced statistical and data mining methods.
