Kevin Boudreau, Ph.D. Co-Founder

Kevin Boudreau, Ph.D. is the Chief Economist and co-Principal Investigator of the Harvard-NASA Tournament Lab, and is an applied micro-economist and strategy researcher. Through his research he generates ideas, devises empirical research designs and conducts quantitative analysis on how platforms are best designed and organized. He aims to explain how the ecosystems of large firms are organized, and provides guidance on different ways to organize ‘crowds’ and open innovation. However, his chief interest – and the orientation of his training – is to derive more fundamental lessons on economic mechanisms shaping productivity and competitiveness.
