Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship
Co-Director of the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Research Center
My research combines institutional theory and entrepreneurship and focuses on the legitimation processes that shape the emergence and evolution of organizations and industries. I conduct empirical work in settings such as the Bordeaux, Australian and Californian wine regions, the nascent US radio industry, crowdfunding platforms, public policies supporting SMEs and global standard of disaster risk reduction.
