My research explores how language and other cultural resources are used by entrepreneurs to create meaning and develop legitimacy.
This includes non-verbal resources (body, dress, space) used as part of behavioral displays and interactions.
I also have an interest in socially situated and embodied cognition in the entrepreneurial context.
