Research interest:

I completed my PhD from the School of Management, Royal Holloway, University of London. My research interest is on entrepreneurship focusing on migrant entrepreneurs and digital economy. Virtualisation in the business world has created an ample of opportunities than ever before and has contributed significantly to the world's economy. Entrepreneurs' contribution to any country's economy has always been remarkably significant. Entrepreneurs are not limited within the national boundaries. Thus, there has been a huge interest in researching on this field as a distinct and emerging discipline.
