Kevin Curran is a Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation. His research focuses on socio-cognitive and socio-cultural views of strategy and entrepreneurship.

In particular, he is researching how iconic entrepreneurs develop in the press, what that means for society and, once established, how renown and celebrity can have unexpected consequences for organisations and their competitive environment. Kevin also conducts research into social entrepreneurship and has consulted with several leading charities and social enterprises in the UK. Kevin examines these issues using both qualitative and quantitative methods. 

Kevin gained his PhD from Cass Business School in London. During his studies, he was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Georgia in 2016 and 2017. Before his PhD, Kevin worked as a facilitator for start-up digital entrepreneurs and as a freelance journalist in Ireland.
