Personal profile

Research interests

I explore entrepreneurship from an individual perspective and an organizational view. I am interested in what drives entry into entrepreneurship and start-up performance. I study how individual experience - particularly in the labour market – determines the performance of new ventures. Also, while emphasizing the role of established organizations as fonts of entrepreneurship, a central element of my research is the matching between workers' characteristics and preferences, with their job. These themes, together with innovation, its management, the interplay between innovation practices and entrepreneurship, are at the core of my research.
