Personal profile

Research interests

My work focuses on the survival and exit of entrepreneurial firms. I am interested in the factors that influence the decision of entrepreneurs about when and how to exit, by closing the business or selling it, and the implications after exit, for individual career paths and organizational knowledge transfer.
