My primary research focus is on reexamining the extant Western theories from the cultural and historical frames of China and East Asia, especially applying the Chinese philosophy of wisdom to the development of holistic, dynamic and duality theories. I have been widely recognized as one of the leading scholars in two fast emerging research streams: (1) multinational firms from the emerging economies, and (2) indigenous research on the Chinese management. He has published over 30 articles in various academic journals. He is serving on the editorial boards of five major management journals, and also Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Trust Research
