Dev is an Associate Professor of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship at the University of New Hampshire, Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. His current research projects examine the impact of knowledge-based partnerships in “high-tech” ecosystems and the benefits it brings for entrepreneurial ventures (in terms of faster new product development cycles, invention and commercialization success, and acquisition potential). In addition, he also studies the benefits of knowledge partnerships on open innovation and through global value chains. For these projects, Dev collaborates with researchers from around the world, including the United States, Canada, China and India.
