PhD Project

Entrepreneurship and mental health

Mental health is an important topic for entrepreneurial research and practice. During my PhD trajectory, I would like to advance current understanding of entrepreneurship by conducting four research projects through the lens of psychology. These include the relationship between psychiatric symptoms and entrepreneurship, the relationship between narcissism and entrepreneurial activities, the work-life interaction of entrepreneurs, and the possibility of applying neurophysiological techniques to entrepreneurial studies.

Neuroeconomics, sub-clinical psychiatric symptoms, resting state EEG, entrepreneurial activities, narcissism, work-family conflict
