Associate Professor of Strategy and Behavioural Science

Research Interests

Chengwei studies behavioural strategy and the role of luck in management and entrepreneurship. His papers were published in management journals (e.g., Organization Science; Academy of Management Annals); interdisciplinary journals (e.g., PNAS; Behavioral and Brain Sciences); and practitioner journals (e.g., California Management Review; Harvard Business Manager).

In an executive course on strategy and entrepreneurship Chengwei develops, he translates his research on behavioural strategy as (a) "arbitraging" competitors' biases (with the cases of Moneyball and the Big Short); and (b) "nudging" employees for improving decisions (with the cases of UK healthcare industry and a Silicon Valley venture capital DFJ).
