I am a Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School.
I come from a family of entrepreneurs: both my dad and my sister have started their own businesses.I have always wondered why they chose that career path and how these choices influenced others around them. I am lucky because I get to find out the answers!
My research thus investigates:
(a) why individuals sometimes give up their jobs and become entrepreneurs
(b) how it matters for established firms and the society in terms inequality, workplace segregation, and income distribution, etc..
In addition to entrepreneurs, my research also investigates mobility patterns of other high human capital workers, including engineers, innovators, finance professionals, musicians, etc.
