Before joining Amsterdam Business School, she worked as a Senior Researcher at the Chair of Entrepreneurship at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

    Her research interests include various topics at the intersection of organization theory and entrepreneurship.

She typically studies this in the context of social enterprises or technology start-ups.
