I pursue my research studies at Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship at Lund University School of Economics and Management.

My current research project is an in-depth qualitative longitudinal study of entrepreneurs' perceptions and attitudes towards possibilities to finance their firms, as well as the individual interpretations of outcomes of chosen financing strategies. The study's aim is to develop new concepts and extend the understanding of financial bootstrapping in new firms. Methodologically, I work mostly with qualitative tools - observations, unstructured and semi-structured interviews, qualitative diaries. My area of expertise also includes systematic reviews and bibliometric analysis with network mapping software.
