In her dissertation 'Engaging with Emerging Technologies: Socio-cognitive foundations of incumbent response’, Tatjana Schneidmüller studies the socio-cognitive dynamics within technology emergence. In three studies, she explores when and how different social communities engage with emerging technologies based on their expertise and field affiliation, examines the effect of their engagement on incumbent response, and highlights the importance of established regulation for incumbent experimentation with emerging technologies.
