Research interests

My research focuses on rural and regional entrepreneurship and innovation.  I strive to understand how processes and patterns of entreprneurship are shaped by social, cultural and enviornmental characteristics in more rural and periheral regions. I firmly believe that the functions of rural businesses extend beyond the purely economic and that we must recognise their key roles as actors of both change and continuity across rural communities.
