My research interests lie in the areas of processes and practice of international collaborations with particular attention to individual and organizational identity and trust building among collaborating partners. My broad research interests in identity and trust building also extend to other organizational contexts such as emerging market multinational corporations, public sectors, and small and medium sized enterprises.
