Assistant Professor | Management and Human Resources

Professor Honore’s work sits at the intersection of strategic management, entrepreneurship, and human capital. She studies two central questions throughout her research. First, what determines who switches into entrepreneurship, either as a founder or early employee? And second, how do prior work experiences influence start-up outcomes (i.e. survival, hiring, managerial practices, and alliances)? Methodologically, she uses discrete choice and two-sided matching models to address these questions.
