My principle areas of research are migration, development and entrepreneurship in Africa. My PhD project is on how returnee entrepreneurs relate business opportunities to development issues in Ghana’s creative industry and how transnationalism shapes these opportunities for business and development. Theoretically the project draws on Bourdieu’s practice theory as well as migration and transnational entrepreneurship theory. I am also affiliated to the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) in Copenhagen (www.diis.dk).

Primary research areas
  • Migration and development
  • Return migration to Africa
  • Transnational entrepreneurship
  • Entrepreneurship as practice
  • Sub-Saharan Africa (Ghana)
