Research

My research, and teaching, focus on topics such as entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, organization, CSR, business ethics and sustainability. In my research, I mainly use philosophical and ethical ideas and concepts. 

My doctoral thesis Infinitely Demanding Entrepreneurship is an ethnographically inspired study where I use the philosopher Simon Critchley's work in order to analyze the social initiative 'IKEA's partnership with social entrepreneurs'.

Infinitely Demanding Entrepreneurship won the Oskar Sillén's Prize for best doctoral thesis written in Sweden on business administration in 2018. You find the full thesis as a pdf below.

From January 2021 to December 2023, I will work full-time as a researcher thanks to Handelsbanken and its Wallander Scholarship.
