David Emanuel Andersson is Associate Professor and Head of the Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Group in the School of Entrepreneurship and Management, ShanghaiTech University. He holds a PhD in Regional Planning from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). David is an interdisciplinary scholar, and has previously held full-time faculty positions in economics, management, and urban planning at universities such as the National Sun Yat-sen University and the University of Nottingham.
|David’s research focuses on how entrepreneurship, institutions, and spatial accessibility shape urban and regional development processes. A specific interest is the ongoing restructuring of functional urban regions from a manufacturing-based industrial economy toward a post-industrial creative society. In the new creative society, there are a number of associated emergent social phenomena, such as greater social tolerance and increasing levels of spatial mobility. David has published numerous books, journal articles, and book chapters that aim to explain the processes of socio-economic change that accompany the transition from one development stage to the next. Another related interest is the long-term evolution of emergent or spontaneous orders such as markets and science, which is the subject matter of the interdisciplinary journal Cosmos + Taxis: Studies in Emergent Order and Organization, which David co-founded in 2012 together with political scientists and philosophers affiliated with the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.|
