Dr Chris James Carter is a mixed methods entrepreneurship researcher and educator with a specific focus on studying the role of digital identity and reputation within the fields of entrepreneurship, cre ativity, and enterprise education. He is especially interested in how individuals, and in particular entrepreneurs, engage in innovative and creative processes within the technological and socio-cultural structures of digital platforms, including social media and online enterprise networks. This line of research builds upon his PhD work, which adopted an interdisciplinary approach to critically analysing individual and organisational conceptions of digital identity and reputational risk, using a mixed method approach to examine the social psychological, sociological, and technological factors that shape, enable, and constrain the self-regulation of social media use by employees.
