Parisa Baig is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Entrepreneurship at the Henley Business School and is a member of the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship.
Parisa's doctoral research contributes to the recent debate on the paradox of embedded agency in the field of institutional entrepreneurship. It explored the relationship between institutional entrepreneurship and legitimacy by focusing on the mechanisms that allows an institutional innovation to become a legitimate entity. Parisa's research interests also include entrepreneurship, institutional change, organisational behaviour as well as entrepreneurial ecosystems.
Parisa has presented her research at a number of conferences, such as the British Academy of Management (BAM), Association of Business Historians (ABH) and the European Group of Organisational Studies (EGOS).
Parisa currently teaches on undergraduate programmes in the Business School covering a range of modules such as: Business Synthesis, Student Enterprise, Practice of Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurial Management Venture Project. In addition, she supervises MBA student projects and dissertations.
