Bio

I graduated in 2014 with a degree (Licenta) in Economics and International Business, spending two years studying at the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and one year at the business school of the University of Amsterdam. My senior thesis proposed and tested an empirical model of the effect of globalisation on firms and explained how companies institutionalize practices to cope with abundant stimuli.

Passionate about research and with an interest in organisation studies and economic sociology, I enrolled in a master’s programme at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, where I specialised in research methods in social sciences. In 2016, I graduated with Distinction. In my master’s thesis, I developed a model to explain start-up success as a consequence of power plays within a large network of investors. I used multiple logit regression on a dataset of over 80.000 start-ups to test the assumptions proposed in my paper.

I have over 2 years of quantitative research experience. I presented my research at conferences in London, Berlin, and Paris. I also have over 2 years professional experience in digital communications.

Research interests:   economic sociology, organisations, networks and computational research methods
