I am a sociologist and currently head of a Freigeist-Research Group on "Entrepreneurial Group Dynamics" at the Technical University in Berlin. The social dynamics of collective entrepreneurship is the focus of my current research. Relatedly, I study ongoing changes in the reproduction mechanisms in SMEs as well as narratives of and about entrepreneurs. With my empirical work, I strive to enrich an economic sociology and entrepreneurship research with insights on the interdependencies between social order and economy. On a methodological level, I have broad experience with a wide range of qualitative methods: regularly engage in quantitative projects with outstanding partners; and explore the potential of cooperative, digital methods.
