I received my Ph.D. from the Helsinki School of Economics in 2008. Before joining the School of Management in fall 2015, I worked 12 years at the Aalto University (Department of Marketing). In 2018-2019, I was a visiting professor at IE Business School, Madrid.


My research interests include high-growth firms, entrepreneurial stress and wellbeing, strategic networks, and industrial service business.


Currently I teach Service Business Development and Startups and Innovation. In addition, I teach Startup Marketing course in the Aalto Ventures Program, Aalto University.
