In my current research, I explore the drivers of SMEs Industry 4.0 adoption: to what extent Government support and/or private sector dynamism drives such adoption, and how is this different across developed and developing countries.
Ultimately, I am interested in how developing countries can leverage 4.0 industry and leapfrog towards more inclusive and sustainable economic growth. 
Previously I worked as international finance and development adviser to the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance in North Macedonia covering development finance, FDIs, smart specialization and fiscal decentralization.
