Research

I am a PhD student and Lecturer in entrepreneurship at the Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship, Lund University. 

My main research interest lies in the field of Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship, Immigrant Entrepreneurship and recently Entrepreneurship among newly arrived Refugees.

I have a special interest in:

  • Understanding the relationship between the contexts in which entrepreneurship is enacted and how the entrepreneur interacts in with these various contexts.
  • Understanding firm growth in firms owned by immigrants and ethnic minority entrepreneurs
  • Understanding the entrepreneurial intentions and subsequent action of newly arrived refugees in Sweden.
  • Understanding how ethnicity can be commodified, manipulated and sold.

4. Briefly describe development work in education – renewal of curriculum and/or pedagogical development:

 

During 2018, I have developed an online course in entrepreneurship, this includes producing around 28 videos. The videos are made up of 15-20 minute theory films (which feature other teachers from SKJCE) and longer case films (around 40 minutes) with local entrepreneurs and actors from the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The videos form part of the course together with online tasks and physical tasks.

 

ENTN06 – Was developed to include links between the theory taught and how it is applied in practice, to this end we attended around 7 guest lectures and made study visits to Massive Entertainment and Zenit Design. I developed a “Feasibility Analysis Guidelines” document which acts to guide the students through various analysis to gauge the feasibility of a project. Peergrade was used in the home exam with great success. Activities in the flipped classrooms

Outreach

ENTRIM – Together with my colleague Solomon Abebe we are engaged in a research project which seeks to understand the entrepreneurial intentions and actions of newly arrived refugees. As part of that research project we run an open evening course for newly arrived refugees, who are interested in entrepreneurship.  We completed our first 12 week course in 2017 and will run 4 more beginning in 2018.
