Personal profile

Research Interests

My scholarly interests range widely, encompassing entrepreneurship and focusing on the culturally instantiated facets of the debate on gender entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial competencies, family businesses, entrepreneurship education, and the informal economy.  My research also contributes to the already established discourse on gendering entrepreneurship and provides explicit feminist perspectives highlighting the inadvertent reinforcement of women’s subordination to men in the context of the entrepreneurial endeavours. 

I am a member of the Global Women Entrepreneurship Program involved in OECD projects on women entrepreneurship policies. I am also an external examiner at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.
