Juniorprofessur Entrepreneurship


Since 2021, I have held the Junior Professorship of Entrepreneurship at the Technical University of Dortmund. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair for Corporate Sustainability at the Technische Universität München (TUM School of Management). I studied economics at the Universidad de Carabobo (Venezuela). Some years later, I did my Master's Research in Entrepreneurship and Management at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain). Afterward, I wrote my doctoral thesis at the Universität Witten/Herdecke (Germany). My doctoral thesis focused on women entrepreneurs and women in family businesses. During my doctoral thesis, I was a visiting scholar at Bentley University (United States) where I studied advanced quantitative methods.


My research focuses on investigating the role of context, such as countries, ecosystems, and families in women's and men's (new) businesses and their consequences because the context influences not only how and why ventures are developed structures but also their survival, growth, and long-term sustainability.
