Personal profile


I joined AMBS as a Senior Lecturer in International Business in January 2024. Prior to joining AMBS, I was an Associate Professor of International Business in the International Business department (CIBUL) at Leeds University Business School, the University of Leeds. I obtained my PhD in Economics from the University of Leeds in 2012, working on a topic in the intersection between industrial economics and transition economics.

My research interests follow two streams, which I often mix. The first one falls into global innovation and economics of innovation. I am interested in understanding the behaviour and outcomes of strategic management of innovation activity and intangible assets across borders. More recently, I started looking into the micro-mechanisms of creating intangible assets within firms and teams, which led me to working with patent data. In a series of ongoing projects, I am investigating inventor-, team-, and firm-level factors influencing innovation performance at various levels. The second stream of my research interests is based on institutions, including institutional economics and institutional theory in sociology. I am interested in understanding how various dimensions of institutional differences across countries alter the behaviour and performance of Multinational Enterprise subsidiaries and local firms.

I am open to PhD applications with topics related to my research interests.
