Personal information

Economic geographer interested in how history shapes the current economy

Scientific Activity

I am an evolutionary economic geographer. I investigate the role of history in shaping the current economic landscape in less developed countries and regions, especially post-communist ones. I focus on entrepreneurship, including the creation of new industries and companies, diversification processes, path dependence and knowledge creation.
