Department of International Economics, Government and Business
My research focuses on the role of international business in economic development. I am particularly interested in multinational firms’ strategies and their interactions with government policies.
Before joining CBS, I held positions as Lecturer in International Business (Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK), Lecturer in Strategy (University of Surrey), and the Advanced Institute of Management Post-doctoral Research Fellow (Cardiff University) co-sponsored by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
I completed my PhD in Land Economy at the University of Cambridge, with full financial support from the Joint Japan-World Bank Graduate Scholarship. I also hold an MSc in Development Studies (University of London, SOAS). Prior to beginning my academic career, I worked in the global logistics/maritime industry, based in Japan and Singapore.
