I am an Associate Professor at EGB and the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria, Canada.

I study the impact of (national and supranational) policy and regulations on global business environments and firm strategy. I am particularly interested in developing countries and how internal and external factors impact their development processes. I also examine global knowledge sourcing, especially related to service and innovation activities, focusing on production processes, characteristics, structures, and value propositions (Global Value Chains).

I am on the editorial review board of the Journal of International Business Studies, the Global Strategy Journal, and International Business Review, and I co-edited a special issue of the Journal of World Business. I am also a board member of the European International Business Academy, the Academy of International Business-Canada Chapter and the Academy of International Business Emerging Market Shared Interest Group. I won several grants and research awards, for example, the EliteForsk Stipend from the Danish Ministry of Research, Innovation, and Higher Education and a Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Grant.

Primary research areas
  • National and supranational policy, institutional environments, intergovernmental organizations
  • Developing countries 
  • International service management
  • Global Value Chains
  • Innovation and intellectual property
