My research is at the intersection of economic development and innovation studies. Previous work focused primarily on the role of the institutional environment for reverse innovation performance. My current research focusses on technology upgrading in China at different industrial levels while highlighting the roles of the institutional environment and domestic/foreign technology efforts in shaping the industry-specific paths of upgrading.
