My research focuses in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship. On a general level, I’m interested in how individuals and firms cope with the unpredictability, uncertainty and mutual dependence that arises in the context of innovative work. My thesis focused on drivers, dynamics and consequences of trust in a context of innovation. During my postdoc, I have studied issues related to trust, innovation, motivation, collaboration and growth in high-technology new firms, as well as issues related to conflict, coordination and trust in inter-organizational R&D collaborations.

Imagine a New Venture Creation class full of young entrepreneurship students. Soon you will divide them into groups and give a task to come up with the innovative business ideas and models, and implement them in practice. What tools and techniques do you have to trace and guide students’ intuition, motivation, drive, persistence and passion in this novel and challenging endeavour? What influence do you have on their deeper metacognitive learning?
These are the main questions I pursue within my doctoral studies. I spent the three past years drilling into this issue from various angles (psychology, psychotherapy, neuroscience, education, marketing and arts) with the aim to identify different cues and combine them into applicable for entrepreneurship education framework.
Please be in touch if sharing the interest in these issues!

Satu’s PhD research work investigates the management of experimentation-driven projects in multidisciplinary teams. It explores how to support the adoption of experimentation in novice multidisciplinary teams, how these teams manoeuvre with the ambiguity and uncertainty inherent to innovation and experimentation, and what is the role of project manager in enabling and facilitating a successful outcome."
