Research Information

Research Description

My primary research focus is oriented towards the intersection of two distinct fields - sustainability and entrepreneurship/innovation.

Interdisciplinary Research

Sustainability research is inherently interdisciplinary as it requires some knowledge of environmental issues, a broad spectrum of business issues (from management, to HR, to IT and R&D) and economic development.
