Entrepreneurship, Organisational Sociology and Regional Science

I am currently doing research on the demography and hiring practices in new firms, the demography of corporate boards, and the organisational dynamics of schools.

I am doing interdisciplinary research at the intersection of Entrepreneurship, Organisational Sociology and Regional Science. I currently pursue three major streams of research:

• Contextual influences on Entrepreneurship
• Meso- and Macro level implications of entrepreneurial activities
• Organisational dynamics (entry, exit, and growth of new organizations)

I am the author of over 100 peer-reviewed articles, books, reports and book chapters on these or related topics. Practical and policy implication of this research are often derived in the form of case studies, research notes, public policy papers and articles for public debate. 

I am on the Editorial Boards of Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Business Venturing and Journal of Business Venturing Insights. I am also senior editor of Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice.
