Biography
I have been a Research Director at the Entrepreneurship unit at the University of Turku since 2009. During 2010-2011 and 2012-2016 I acted as a Professor of Entrepreneurship in our 2nd Campus at Pori.

I have been working in the entrepreneurship research unit since 1996 and I took my PhD in the Turku School of Economics in 2003 (thesis title: Stories of Entrepreneurs: Narrative Construction of Entrepreneurial Identities) and was awarded 'Doctor Primus' in the Conferment of Degrees in 2005. I was appointed an Adjunct Professor in the Turku School of Economics in 2007 (special area: Research on entrepreneurs).


Research



My
research focuses on entrepreneurship and particularly on researching
entrepreneurship at the individual level. I have studied entrepreneurial
identity construction and identity work in new ventures and family businesses.
I am also interested in understanding gender in entrepreneurship, innovation
and family firms. My research has also investigated policies supporting
entrepreneurship development, most notably entrepreneurship education and
incubators.



I have over 20 years of experience from policy, practice-oriented
and academic research projects that are conducted in continuous and active
engagement with firms and other stakeholders, including European Commission and
DGs, OECD, Ministries and regional authorities and decision-makers.







Teaching
I have taught entrepreneurship at B.Sc., M.Sc. and post-graduate levels. During 2012-2016 I was responsible for the entrepreneurship studies at the Pori unit (25 cr, minor subject at the B.Sc. level). Currently I am responsible for one course (New venture creation) at the B.Sc. studies in Turku and for one post graduate level course (Qualitative research in entrepreneurship).
