Summary of Research Interests: I am interested in the dynamics throughout the innovation process and the growth process in small businesses, as well as the influence of the actors and the factors related to the entrepreneurship ecosystem and the innovation system. I use a longitudinal approach to investigate these processes that are treated as black boxes in past studies. The outcomes of my research provide new tools to growth-oriented entrepreneurs, small business innovation managers and public policy makers.
