Rohin Borpujari

  • Degree Programme: PhD in Organisational Behaviour

Rohin Borpujari is a PhD Candidate at the London Business School.

His dissertation investigates how secretive innovation is organized, using an in-depth historical case study of the Manhattan Project. Amidst rising debates around open versus closed approaches to collaborative knowledge work, Rohin’s research aims to understand how people navigate knowledge sharing and concealment while managing associated social dynamics of inclusion and exclusion within and across organizations. His work on the Manhattan Project has been recognized with Best Paper and Murray Davis 'Thats Interesting!' awards at AOM and EGOS respectively, and was recently featured on the Talking About Organizations podcast.

Rohin has an undergraduate degree in Economics from Macalester College. Prior to starting the PhD, he was a management consultant with Pricewaterhouse Coopers, where he worked with over a dozen different organizations spanning multiple industries. Outside of research, Rohin enjoys playing tennis, the acoustic guitar, and trying to make a dent in his pile of "to-read" books.
