Bio

Born and raised in Germany, I moved to the UK in 2013 to start my BSc in International Business at the University of Surrey. During these three years, I also spend a term abroad at the University of Sydney in Australia. This international background fuelled my interest in studying multinational companies. During my Master’s at the London School of Economics (LSE), I further discovered my passion for studying how large multinationals can use corporate innovation as a source of growth in mature and new markets. I decided to pursue a PhD at Henley Business School due to its excellent reputation in International Business Strategy and its world-leading research in the field. More importantly, I encountered many of the Business School’s academic staff, who were enthusiastic about the topic, helping me to refine my research proposal and applying for funding. Having found an amazing supervisory team, I am excited to pursue my PhD at Henley.
