Research

I defended my PhD thesis at Sten K Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship on the 22nd of December 2017, where I am conducting research in the field of entrepreneurial learning within entrepreneurship education. In my dissertation i focus on problematizing the balance between action and reflective thinking when adopting experience-based pedagogy in entrepreneurship education. I was supervised by Asociate professor Diamanto Politis and Professor Hans Landström. 

Currently I have a two-year post-doc stipend conducting research on alumni graduating from entrepreneurship education. In the alumni project I, together with Associate Professor Diamanto Politis, collaborate with researchers at NTNU in Norway and researchers at Chalmers school of Entrepreneurship. Within the boundaries of the reserach project we aim to advance the knowledge frontier of the effects when taking a master program in entrepreneurship that has a specific focus on new venture creation, but also to develop insights and take stock on how entrepreneurship alumni's career pattern looks like.

In addition I also conduct reserach on a policy level focused on entrepreneurship education and its development mainly from a critical perspective, but I also write papers based on normative ethics and educational philosophy focused on the domain of entrepreneurship research including learning and education.
