Research Interests & Areas

My general research area is Strategic Management. As a researcher, I apply Strategy Theory to the subfields of International Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology Management. To be more specific, my research interests lie where Strategy interfaces with International Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology Innovation Management. Within these areas, my philosophical goal has been to push the envelope of research on these topics in pragmatic ways with sophisticated methodologies that will enhance managerial decision-making. Since the field of strategy is holistic in nature, within the above domains I have taken a dialectic approach to develop breadth of knowledge in my field of work.
