Research Interests

My main research focus is minority or marginalized groups in entrepreneurship, employment and innovation in different societies. Examples of such groups include women, refugees, people with disabilities, youth/students, migrants, ethnic minorities or the low-income people. Among these groups, I study employment, social and economic value creation, sustainable, responsible and social entrepreneurial/innovative initiatives. In addition, I study impact of responsible and sustainable development initiatives (e.g., microfinance, FinTech) among marginalized communities.
