His current research aims to improve our understanding (1) of competitive dynamics under uncertainty, using data from the America''s Cup World Series sailing competition (working together with Jan-Michael Ross), (2) of innovation and the inventive process, using data on all inventions created by the employees of a large multinational firm operating in a complex-goods industry (working together with Paola Criscuolo, Oliver Alexy, and Ammon Salter), and (3) of competition within and between innovation ecosystems, in the context of the changes taking place in the telecommunications sector over the past decades (working together with a number of co-authors including Erkko Autio, Llewellyn Thomas, Bilgehan Uzunca and Richard Tee).

Dmitry teaches Entrepreneurship and Corporate Strategy, and has also taught and coached on the Innovation and Entrepreneurship summer school.
