Research

Research

My research and teaching focus on topics such as entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, organization, ethics, and sustainability. In my research, I mainly use ideas and concepts from the humanities, and in particular philosophy.  

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 (2018) for best doctoral thesis in business administration in Sweden. You find the full thesis as a pdf below (publications). 

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