I am currently an Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship, having joined the Aalto University School of Business in 2015.

My research focuses on how entrepreneurship and organising can help tackle grand social challenges such as poverty, inequality, refugee crises, and rising authoritarianism.

My work has been published in Journal of Business Venturing, Organization Studies, and other management and entrepreneurship journals.

Currently, I am teaching Social Innovation as well as Market Entry Strategies for Entrepreneurial Business to Aalto MSc students.
