I conduct research at Sten K Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship. My research interests are entrepreneurial learning and education with a specfic focus on how individuals develop skills and knowledge through experiences and by this facilitating their ability to recognize and exploit business opportunities. In addition, I am involved in research about commercialization of new technology, academic entrepreneurship, and the role of innovation intermediaries in entrepreneurial systems. 


I am currently the Director of Education at Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship and Director for the Master's Programme in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, New Venture Creation. My teaching is primarily on the Master's Programme where I teach the courses The entrepreneurial Process and Opportunity Recognition and Degree Project - New Venture Creation.
