I received my Ph.D. from the Helsinki School of Economics in 2008. Before joining the Department of Management in fall 2015, I worked 12 years at the Aalto University (Department of Marketing)



My PhD project focused on high-growth firms and networks. While I continue to do research in this domain, my other research interests include strategic networks and alliances, industrial service business, business and especially customer intelligence, ambidexterity, and small firm reputation. Currently I am a senior researcher in the Nevs research group.



I have taught such courses as e.g., Business Marketing Management and Capstone Course for Marketing and supervised Bachelor's and Master's Thesis in the fields of entrepreneurship and marketing. Currently I teach the Master's level course Service Business Development and supervise Master's Thesis. In addition, I teach Entrepreneurial Marketing course as a visiting university lecturer at the Aalto Ventures Program, Aalto University.
