Siobhán O'Mahony is an Assistant Professor at the Harvard Business School.

Her research examines technical communities and their relations with firms, the management of innovation and a technical labor force and new forms of cooperation. A pervasive objective is to understand how new social structures emerge when boundaries become blurred and how power differentials contribute to the emergence of negotiated technical orders. Her current research, “Competing on a Common Platform”, examines how over 100 firms contribute to a common technical resource while creating unique sources of competitive differentiation.

She received her Ph.D. in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University.
