My key research interests include relationships between multinational enterprises and governments, as well as how MNEs from emerging economies deal with institutional complexity and manage change. My recent research projects include development of rural entrepreneurial ecosystems and ethics in research, academia and organizations. In particular, I am interested in ethical leadership and how it shaped global business environment. I am also interested in methodological issues in conducting qualitative research in emerging and developed economies.
