My principal research interest lies in practices and processes that tend to shape innovation in organizations and markets. My perspective stands in the intersection point of the institutional and inter-organizational network theories. I have studied life science and retail markets. The aim of my research is to develop models and tools for scholars, industry practitioners and policy makers working in these fields.
I defended my doctoral dissertation entitled "Entering a Global Play: Insights into Swedish Small Life Science Firms’ Legitimation in International Networks" in February 2016 at the Department of Marketing and Strategy, Stockholm School of Economics (SSE).
My current research projects:
• Market legitimation of life science technologies
• Internationalization behavior of medium-sized retail firms
• Various courses related to organization, innovation management, entrepreneurship, and strategy. I am currently teaching in the BSc Course "Supply Chain Management" at the SSE Retail Management Program.
