Nadeera Ranabahu

I am a researcher at University of Canterbury. My main research focus is disadvantaged or under-represented groups in entrepreneurship, employment and innovation. Examples of such groups include women, refugees, youth/students, migrants or ethnic minorities or low-income people. I study employment of disadvantaged people and how these groups sustain entrepreneurial/innovative actions from a macro or micro perspective. In addition, I study the impact of innovative initiatives (e.g., microfinance, FinTech), targeted on such disadvantaged groups, to promote entrepreneurship and employment. I also study responsible innovation and ways which disadvantaged/under-represented groups could be incorporated into the innovation journey.
