International Entrepreneurship (e.g. entrepreneurial orientation, innovativeness, competitive aggressiveness)
- The role of formal and informal institutions in firms’ international activities and performance (e.g. network ties, emerging markets)

Her doctoral thesis has focused on investigating how export product adaptation affects customer value creation. She is currently involved in a multi-country project examining “Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century” and specifically tackling issues such as export product adaptation, innovativeness, entry-mode and international CSR.

- Consumer psychology & behaviour (e.g. the role of emotions in marketing settings, consumer’s attitudes and intentions)

She holds experience both in:
- Quantitative research (regression analysis & SEM-structural equation modelling)

- Qualitative research (e.g. interviews), preferably as part of a mixed methods approach

Her work is frequently presented in international conferences and she is extremely keen on supervising students on any of the above-mentioned research areas.
