I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Business School, Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies, University of Eastern Finland.

I have a keen interest on how entrepreneurship and innovation advances social and environmental sustainability. What intrigues me is the capacity of entrepreneurial and societal actors in doing so collectively. With that interest, my research includes, but not limited to, the making of a socially inclusive circular economy, social and sustainable entrepreneurship, and business models for sustainability.

I have developed and taught courses on entrepreneurship, responsible and sustainable business, strategic management, and qualitative research methods.
