Presentation

My research mainly explores issues of business in developing countries. It often considers developing country firms’ access to  local and global markets, and draws upon global value chain theory. I currently work on links between World Heritage designation and retail change in Hoi An, Vietnam. I am also part of the Kenya team of the CBS-based Successful African Firms and Institutional Change project.

Primary research areas
  • Developing country firms in global value chains
  • Global and local retail in developing countries
  • Economic geography
  • Clothing and food industries
  • Business-state relations and transition economies
  • Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam
