Biographical note

I explore the determinants of firm performance in nascent industries. Using historical and statistical methods, I explore antecedents & consequences of entrepreneurial uncertainties & capabilities. I teach entrepreneurship and econometrics courses for master's students and a management course for undergraduates. I serve the scholarly community by reviewing articles for journals and conferences and organizing symposia and workshops at conferences. Before academia, I worked as an electrical engineer for various electrical utilities in Ontario for seven years.
