Short Bio

Upon finishing my undergraduate degree in 2006, I started working in multinational companies where I gained professional and managerial experience until 2012. In 2015, I finalized my dissertation under the supervision of John Rijsman and Gerda van Dijk, and obtained my Ph.D. degree from Tilburg University, one of the most respected institutions specialized in social and behavioral sciences. Following the completion of my doctoral degree, I started my academic career with the University of Liverpool, a Russell Group university and started supervising doctoral students at the Management School, where I am still affiliated with on an external basis. Shortly after taking this role, I have also started my full time position at the Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University, the oldest university in Central and Southeastern Europe, largest and most respected in the Czech Republic. In 2018, I moved to Paris to take up the faculty position at the Paris School of Business, and served as the Head of Specialization of International Management in the BBA program until 2021.
