Matthew Regele is currently a PhD student in Organisations & Management at the Yale School of Management. His main research interests include innovation and growth in small and medium-sized established companies, as well the sociological underpinnings of business strategy. Matt is drawn to multi-method research designs that begin with hypotheses developed via inductive, qualitative research and that end with empirical tests of these hypotheses via quantitative methods such as field experiments. Currently, he is working on the first stage of such a project, in which he is examining innovation and growth in Connecticut manufacturers. Matthew also holds a BA in Economics from Bowdoin College and an MBA from Babson College.
