Research Interests:

Research focuses on the nexus between business strategy and government policies, primarily for network and information industries in an international context. Questions that capture Dr. Jamison's interests are those that break new ground, challenge conventional wisdom, or test conflicting points of view. Current research projects include studies of network ownership and entrepreneurship, strategic choices in network connectivity, effects of public and private ownership, best practices in regulatory policy, and leadership in public policy.
