I’m Dave. I am a third year PhD student in the Management department at Tech. I am very excited to go on the Global Perspectives trip and make lifelong memories. I was born in Sweden but moved to the USA when I was 2 or 3. I grew up outside of Chicago, but have lived along the Mississippi river, Kentucky, Miami, Orange County CA and now Blacksburg. I enjoy reading and hiking. I also love to teach and have been lucky enough to teach both undergraduate and graduate level courses at Tech.
My main academic work is in the area of business strategy (how companies compete with one another) but more specifically how companies can be more competitive through technology and innovation.
