Dr Daniel Prokop
Lecturer in Economic Geography
Daniel is a Lecturer in Economic Geography. His research interests are broadly in the regional economic development.
Previous to this position I worked as a Lecturer in International Business at Sheffield Business School (2015-2018). I completed my ESRC-sponsored PhD (2017) at the School of Geography and Planning (Cardiff) on “The Determinants of University Spinout Formation and Survival: The UK Context of Network, Investment, and Management Team Effects”.
My research interests are in regional economic development, specifically observing the aspects of high technology entrepreneurship, small business sustainability, knowledge spillovers, and spatial configurations of networks of economic actors. By exploring these areas I try to understand the uneven nature of economic development and what various economic actors do to overcome these spatial problems.
