HENRY SAUERMANN, Assistant Professor, Strategic Management, Ernest Scheller, Jr., College of Business, Georgia Tech
“Dr. Henry Sauermann joined the College in 2008. His research focuses on individuals’ motives and incentives, and how they interact with organizational and institutional mechanisms in shaping innovative activity. In particular, he studies how scientists’ motives and incentives relate to important outcomes such as innovative performance in firms, patenting in academia, or career choices and entrepreneurial intentions. This stream of research also explores important differences in these mechanisms across contexts such as industrial versus academic science or startups versus large established firms.
“In new projects, Dr. Sauermann studies the dynamics of motives and incentives over time, and explores non-traditional innovative institutions such as “Crowd Science” or “Citizen Science” (e.g., https://www.zooniverse.org/). Additional work is underway to gain deeper insights into scientific labor markets and to derive implications for junior scientists, firms, and policy makers.”

He served as Head of the Departments of Physical Chemistry (1985-90) and Materials Chemistry (1990-96) before leaving Bell Labs to join the Yale University faculty in 1996. Tully’s research centers on the development of theoretical and computational tools aimed at achieving an atomic-level understanding of dynamical processes at surfaces and interfaces, and in the condensed phase. Among the theoretical developments he is pursuing are mixed quantum-classical molecular dynamics, and improved sampling methods for simulation of rare events. He is applying these techniques to examine the rates and pathways of energy flow that accompany the adsorption, desorption or diffusion of a molecule on a surface, as well as to simulate intrinsically quantum mechanical processes such as electron transfer and proton transfer at interfaces.”
