Melissa A. Schilling is the Herzog Family Professor of Management at New York University Stern School of Business. She received her Bachelor of Science in business administration from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She received her Doctor of Philosophy in strategic management from the University of Washington. Professor Schilling’s research focuses on innovation and strategy in high technology industries such as smartphones, video games, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, electric vehicles, and renewable energies. She is particularly interested in platform dynamics, networks, creativity, and breakthrough innovation. Her textbook, Strategic Management of Technological Innovation (now in its fifth edition), is the number one innovation strategy text in the world. She is also coauthor of Strategic Management: An integrated approach (now in its twelfth edition).
Roberta Sinatra is Assistant Professor at IT University of Copenhagen, and holds visiting positions at ISI (Turin, Italy) and Complexity Science Hub (Vienna, Austria). Her research is at the forefront of network science, data science and computational social science. Currently, she spends particular attention on the analysis and modeling of dynamics that lead to the collective phenomenon of success, with focus on science and art. Roberta completed her undergraduate and graduate studies in Physics at the University of Catania, Italy, and was first a postdoctoral fellow, then a research faculty at the Center for Complex Network Research of Northeastern University (Boston MA, USA). Her research has been published in general audience journals such as Nature and Science, and has been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, The Economist, The Guardian, The Washington Post, among other major media outlets.
Bernhard Voelkl is a postdoctoral researcher at the Veterinary Public Health Institute of the University of Bern, Switzerland. He studied biology and zoology at the University of Vienna receiving his PhD in 2005. He is an evolutionary ecologist who has worked with various study species (primates and birds) both in the field and the lab. The topic of his early research focused on cooperation and social information propagation in animal communities and animal social networks. He has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the CNRS-Strasbourg, the Humboldt University at Berlin and the Edward Grey Institute of Field Ornithology at the University of Oxford. He is the scientific coordinator of Waldrappteam and elected fellow of the Royal Geographic Society. Recently he has turned his attention towards the reproducibility of preclinical animal studies and investigates how the norm of reaction affects biological variability and reproducibility of study results in biomedical animal research.
Dean Keith Simonton is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of California, Davis. After earning his 1975 Harvard doctorate in social psychology, his research has largely focused on diverse aspects of genius, creativity, leadership, talent, and aesthetics. Although he most frequently uses historiometric methods, he has also published mathematical models, computer simulations, laboratory experiments, psychometric assessments, meta-analyses, interviews, and single-case studies. The resulting output includes 14 books, 153 book chapters, 47 entries in 27 encyclopedias, and 345 contributions to 134 journals, annuals, and other periodicals. His Google i10- and h-indices stand at 259 and 75, respectively. Dr. Simonton has also received numerous honors, such as the William James Book Award, the George A. Miller Outstanding Article Award, the SPSP Theoretical Innovation Prize, and the Sir Francis Galton Award. In 2018 MIT Press put out The Genius Checklist: Nine Paradoxical Tips on How You Can Become a Creative Genius.
Staša Milojević is an Associate Professor of Informatics in the Center for Complex Network and Systems Research in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University, Bloomington. Her work covers a range of topics within the “science of science.” She is particularly interested in understanding how dramatic changes in knowledge production, exemplified by a shift towards “team science”, interdisciplinarity, and increased pressures on productivity impact the dynamics of scientific workforce and on the overall pace of science. Her work has been published in PNAS, Scientific Reports, and Physical Review Letters. She serves on the editorial boards of Scientometrics, BioScience, and Journal of Altmetrics. She is an Associate Editor for the Quantitative Science Studies and Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics. She received a PhD in Information Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles.
