COVID-19

Research

I am researching the ongoing global pandemic’s impact on business continuity in high-tech manufacturing. Business continuity is different from emergency response, and focuses on minimizing disruptions so business operations may resume.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

Before coming to Taiwan, I worked in enterprise risk management, and presented on the topic at National Taiwan University prior to the management school’s abdication of this subject area. I remained to continue understanding and developing management solutions with the university’s engineering college. The difference between the two is “management vs. management of.”

Between my arrival and the pandemic, I was researching the application of machine learning methods to value appropriation frameworks to increase collaboration amongst high-tech manufacturing firms, and its role in the digital transformation of traditional industries.

Projects included leveraging earthquake warning infrastructure for high-tech ecosystem build out, consumer IoT to stabilize Taiwan’s power grid, and incorporating IoT in dairy production to stabilize prices.
