Dr Marrisa Joseph is a Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at the Henley Business School and a member of the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship, as well as being a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Marrisa's research focuses on the formation of business practices in the Victorian publishing industry, in particular examining how socio-cultural influences enable and constrain how individuals made strategic decisions. Her research interests are predominately in business history and due to her experience of working in the publishing industry she is also interested in the management of organisations in the creative industries. In 2017 Marrisa was the recipient of the Journal of Management History Award for Best International Paper at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting. Her book 'Victorian Literary Businesses' was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2019.
