I am a doctoral candidate within the Strategy, Organizational and Entrepreneurial Studies Department. My research focuses on spatial issues in both entrepreneurship and strategy. As part of my dissertation work and other research projects, I have examined topics such as regional differences in entrepreneurial dynamics and ecosystems, the impacts of regions on the strategic behaviors and performances of technology-based startup firms, and the geographic diversification strategies of venture capital firms. I have also taught junior and senior level undergraduate courses in both entrepreneurship and strategy.
Prior to joining the doctoral program at the University of Colorado I worked as research scientist in two startup firms, developing therapeutic solutions for prostate and lung cancer. I also previously obtained a masters degree in Biomedical Engineering from McGill University and an undergraduate degree in Physiology and Mathematics from the University of Toronto.
