Research Interests

My research interests lie in the area of family business innovation and, specifically, in the effects of non-economic goals of family businesses on innovation and performance. For my doctoral dissertation, I have conducted a survey to examine how socioemotional wealth influences family firm decision making, innovation, and performance. Beyond family firms, I have also participated in other research projects that focus on entrepreneurial opportunity identification, event analysis in IT firms, and corporate entrepreneurship.
