I am interested in how ideas are formed, organizations are created, and how those organizations create change in our world through the power of enterprise. I teach on topics in entrepreneurship, social enterprise, nonprofit management, strategic management, marketing and innovation, and leadership, and I focus on opportunities for my students to learn through practice. My research focuses on how organizations make sense of their identities, values, and missions, how entrepreneurs and their organizations confront failure, and how entrepreneurship can be used to make our world a more equitable and sustainable place.
