    Personal profile



    I am a Senior Lecturer in Business and Management at Coventry University since September 2015. I hold a PhD in Innovation Management and Science and Technology Policy from SPRU – Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex. My research is focused on the fields of innovation studies and entrepreneurship. I teach research methods and innovation management for MSc programmes at Coventry University.

    Before joining Coventry University, I worked as a research fellow at UCL – University College London. I took part in two large scale EU FP7 Framework projects AEGIS and GRINCOH. These projects primarily focused on knowledge-based entrepreneurship and innovation concepts in the EU as well as the growth, innovativeness and cohesion of Central and Eastern Europe to the wider EU.




    My research focuses on technology and innovation management, entrepreneurship, corporate entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial orientation, and the role of innovation and entrepreneurial activity on sustainable economic growth in technology-based sectors. 

    I also have extensive interest in developing and using new methodologies to conduct my research. I have strong quantitative analyses skills as a professional user of STATA, SPSS, and PLS—PM software (structural equation modelling) as well as particular experience in survey design and implementation to collect qualitative data to conduct specifically multiple case study analyses or set-theoretic methodologies such as QCA - Qualitative Comparative Analysis.
