My research focuses on how the physical work environment impacts innovation. In particular, I am interested in investigating the influence of remote working on innovation. Living in different countries has given me the privilege to engage with different cultures, making cultural studies one of my main research interests. Working in higher education has made me interested in exploring how it can affect innovation, too.
