Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship within Strathclyde Business School. I am also a graduate of Strathclyde, having previously completed my PhD in International Business in this institution. Before that, I studied for a Masters degree in Management at Queen's University Belfast. My research focuses on different aspects of international business and entrepreneurship, and in particular on such topics as the international expansion of SMEs (including via Global Value Chains), entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial development in challenging contexts, internationalisation of firms from emerging markets and transition economies, and exploration of the impact of institutional environments on different firm activities. More recently my focus has been on exploring how firms respond and mitigate the various challenges of operating in environments characterised by institutional deficiency and uncertainty, which reflects my growing interest on exploring ongoing interactions between actors and their contexts. 

My research is inter-diciplinary in nature, drawing on theories and concepts from economic thinking, institutional theory, international business, entrepreneurship, and development studies. My research has been published in internationally-recognised peer-revied academic journals, such as International Business Review, Journal of Business Research, and International Marketing Review. Alongside research, I teach and coordinate a number of classes (e.g. International Business Analysis, Managing Across Cultures, Global Business Environment) at both undegraduate and postgraduate levels within the Business School.
