Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on enabling, accelerating, and funding the entrepreneurial journey, from initial idea to viable venture, in independent, corporate, and social settings. An evolving entrepreneurial opportunity is central in this process: obvious in retrospect, but uncertain, nebulous, and ambiguous in prospect. I am interested in how potential entrepreneurs and investors think, act, and interact in the face of such uncertainty and how these interactions give rise to exciting new phenomena.
