PhD in Human Geography with research interest in geographies of family co-occurrence and firm performance, familial entrepreneurship, immigration and labour market outcomes and regional development.
I am a PhD student in Economic Geography at Umeå University. In my PhD journey, I zoom in on regional economic resilience by investigating human agency to adapt to incremental and sudden economic changes.
My research interests are focused on the role of entrepreneurship as an instrument to improve the circumstances of less advantaged regional economies as well as individuals with skills that are less valued on the labour market.
