Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Reasons for Being at Laurier?

The program fit well with the other commitments I have (re: family, work, community involvement) and because of its geographic proximity to Toronto and the program structure. In many ways though, my involvement was serendipitous in that I was not aware of the program until my son enrolled in the dual degree program at Laurier and I went on line to see what that program was about. 

Then I discovered there is a PhD opportunity at Laurier. My final decision was driven largely by the interactions I had with Nicole Coviello and the positive impression she had on me. Incredible faculty, collegiality, and lively discourse. The new building adds a touch of class as well.

Research Interests

How do differences in decision logics influence the entrepreneurial process and the networking that underpins entrepreneurial endeavours? The question is of interest because:

  1. The literature is dominated by assumptions that rely on only a single decision logic and it is increasingly acknowledged that this does not mirror reality.
  2. I can see immense practical and pedagogical value in the research I am involved with.

Career Goal

I envision a career in academics with a good balance between research and teaching. I am drawn to such a career by my interest in continuing to learn and love for teaching.
