In 2014 I joined Aston University to work on the FP7 funded research project SEFORIS - Social Enterprise as Force for more Inclusive and Innovative Societies. As of 2016 I am a lecturer in Entrepreneurship at Aston.
In 2014, I completed my PhD at the University of Amsterdam. My PhD research investigated the dynamics of entrepreneurship and small businesses in urban residential neighbourhoods.
