Presentation

My research interests span the broad areas of corporate governance, and international business and economics. In corporate governance my research focuses on the role and impact of ownership types and board of directors, and the role of national governance bundles on firm operations in developed, developing and emerging economies. In international business and economics my interests cover a host of issues such as the organizational dynamics of multinational enterprises, the home and host country impacts of multinational enterprise activities, the interrelation between international trade and foreign direct investment, and the political economy of trade and investment flows.

Primary research areas
  • Boards of Directors
  • Ownership and ownership dynamics
  • Governance of multinational enterprises
  • Firm internationalization, and pattern of trade and foreign direct investment
  • Emerging markets
