Most of my research focuses on community-based entrepreneurship, that is, the process in which  members of a community collectively identify, develop and exploit opportunities to establish entrepreneurial ventures with the aim to solve a problem and generate added value for the community. 

My research is based on several years of empirical work in multiple countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Bangladesh and the United States. I employ qualitative, often ethnographic methods to ensure great immersion and comprehension of the phenomenon, and quantitative methods to test my findings on a larger scale. I am always eager to learn about new community-based enterprises to explore!
