Qualifications & Memberships
My overall research goal is to reduce inequalities and promote social and economic inclusion. Aligning with this goal, my main research focus is entrepreneurship practices in minority groups. Currently, I focus more on refugees, immigrants, low income people and women and study their business start-up, development and economic involvement. In addition, I study social entrepreneurship and social innovations in communities and how these contribute to reduction in inequalities. I also study the intersection between microfinance and sustainability.
