Steffen Farny is Assistant Professor for International Social and Sustainable Entrepreneurship at the Center for Sustainability Management at the Leuphana University Luneburg. In my research, I focus on sustainability and entrepreneurship, the role of emotions in organisational processes, and enterprising in extreme environments. I apply predominantly qualitative research methods to study practices, affect and institutional processes. As part of an EU-FP7 project, I investigated the entrepreneurship journey of community-based enterprises. My interest on post-disaster recovery has motivated me to do ethnographic field research in Haiti after the major 2010-earthquake, in a community in Southern Chile after a volcano eruption, and most recently on several islands in the Caribbean affected by hurricanes Irma and Maria. In addition to that I try to research and engage in the development of challenge-based entrepreneurship education.
