Bio

Martha G. Russell is Emerita Executive Director of mediaX and senior research scholar at the Human Sciences and Technology Advanced Research (H*STAR) Institute at Stanford University. When the Internet emerged, Russell pioneered early online adaptations of market research methods for business research. Russell studies innovation ecosystems using data-driven visualization methods for systems analysis. Russell’s current research focuses on network analysis of inter firm relationships to identify patterns in emerging business sectors (green tech), investor networks, and global business development. Russell is an organizational interface activist, specializing in technology transfer between academic and industry researchers. She has established collaborative research initiatives in technology leadership and information sciences for national science agencies and technology companies, has led interdisciplinary research programs at the University of Minnesota, The University of Texas at Austin, and Stanford University. She has consulted regionally and internationally on information technology innovation for regional development. She organized the Internet2 Sociotechnical Summit in 1999, inviting social scientists and engineers of a consortium of universities and industry to collaborate in creating a research agenda in high bandwidth communications for the social sciences, in order to place content on the Abilene Network that would facilitate IPV6 developments. She is a flutist and pianist and founded Tahoe Music Alive, a concert series for small ensemble, intimate venue performances in the North Tahoe Region. She serves on the advisory boards of several journals, businesses and non-profit organizations.
