Project Title: Measuring Combinatorial Innovation using MeSH keyword combinations
Project Description: Research in Petersen’s laboratory is primarily data-oriented, focusing on the evolution of large multiscale socio-economic systems by applying concepts and methods from complex systems, statistical physics, management and innovation science. Units of analysis are multiscale, ranging from individual publications and careers, up to institutions and broad research areas — with the goal of identifying statistical regularities and causal mechanisms that can inform science policy and individual success strategy.
