I am currently working as a doctoral researcher at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR), funded by the Alliance Manchester Business School PhD Scholarship. Prior to this, I gained significant experience in strategy and IT consulting from different positions in Germany. While I am working as a seminar leader on undergraduate and postgraduate level at AMBS, I am also actively involved in the development of new and revised courses in the areas of entrepreneurship and sustainability. 

My research revolves around: New forms of start-up incubation (accelerators, makerspaces, hackathons, pitching competitions), early-stage start-ups, venture capital and angel investments, business model development & entrepreneurial processes, entrepreneurship & innovation policy.
