My areas of research are situated in the cross section between Political Economy and International Business with a specific focus on China’s Strategic Emerging Industries. Elaborated the fields of Industry 4.0, New Energy Vehicles and Next Generation Information Technology, are areas of special interest. My research looks into new policies and regulatory patterns, specifically designed to spur innovation and cluster formation in these Strategic Emerging Industries. Moving from the theoretical paradigm of Political Economy and the Chinese governments guidance of the economy, the corresponding impacts on business level are analyzed and understood from an International Business perspective, where evolving frameworks of innovation along with governance of the knowledge economy are scrutinized.
