I am Professor of Political Science at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  I have been teaching at Indiana since 1981. My main area of specialization is international political economy.  Most of my research in the past two decades has been on the politics of international economic competitiveness in the advanced industrial nations. I recently completed a project on globalization in collaboration with Aseem Prakash and a book on the politics of high definition television (HDTV).  Sangbae Kim and I have published a series of essays analyzing the importance of information technology. I am continuing to work in collaboration with Stefanie Lenway and Tom Murtha at the University of Minnesota on the world flat panel display industry. This research was supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. I am currently working on a study of the global biotechnology industry.
