My research focuses on strategic management phenomena in multinational enterprises particularly at the interface between headquarters and foreign subsidiaries. This includes investigations into "boundary-spanning" leadership capabilities for success in the post-recession, “two-speed” global economy.

Other topics include strategies for winning in emerging markets while simultanousely mastering the competitive environment in low-growth mature markets, and competing against -or collaborating with- the newly emerging global competitors from developing markets.
