Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I am an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship and the Director of the Master's Progamme in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management at the Aalto University Business School. I received my my MA and BA in Sociology from the University of Graz in Austria, and my PhD in Economic Geography from the University of Turku in Finland. I have held research and teaching positions in Finland, Austria and the UK.

My entrepreneurship research is pronouncedly multi-disciplinary, applying theories from (social) psychology, (organizational) sociology and (human) geography. Combining quantitative and qualitative methods, my main research interests are: Social Legitimation of New Ventures and Venture Failure; Entrepreneurship Culture and Regional Development; Place Attachment in Sustainable Entrepreneurship; Venture Imagination and Everyday Enterprising in Adverse Contexts; Shared Emotions and Local Institutional Work and Change; Wellbeing and Later Career Entrepreneurship.

My research has been published in outlets such as the Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Economic Geography, Environment & Planning A, Small Business Economics, Entrepreneurship & Regional Development, International Small Business Journal, Journal of Small Business Management, and Regional Studies. My work has also been featured at the Best Papers proceedings of the Academy of Management Conference, ISBE Conference and the Frontiers for Entrepreneurship at the Babson Conference for Entrepreneurship.

I am an Editorial Review Board Member of Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice and the International Small Business Journal. I also act as peer-reviewer for academic outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, Small Business Economics, Entrepreneurship & Regional Development, Journal of Small Business Management and Regional Studies. In 2017, I have been selected as an Outstanding Reviewer for Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. Further, I am on the Advisory Board of the Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report and I am acting as Reviewer of Social Entrepreneurship Teaching Cases for Oikos International.

Besides being Director of the Master's Programme, I am currently responsible for five Master's -level courses: Sustainable Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship & Society, Project Work, Researching Entrepreneurship and Master's Thesis Seminar. I am currently also responsible for around ten Entrepreneurship Master's thesis supervisions, and I am supervising three PhD students working in the following areas: Legitimation of Sustainable Enterprises, Entrepreneurial Identity Construction in Extreme Contexts, and The Sketching of a Philosophy of Entrepreneurship.

I also regularly collaborate with policy-makers and practitioneers, including advising ILO, the OECD, the European Commission and Eurostat on entrepreneurship matters.
