Research interests

My current research work is focused on the strategic motivations of internationalization by emerging markets companies, within the framework of Strategic Management Theory. I have considered this topic using companies in the services sector from India. I chose this area given that outward FDI from emerging market economies has steadily increased over the past few decades. Additionally, I am keen to understand whether the rise of emerging markets multinational enterprises is consistent with existing international business theories, or whether there are new motivations developing.
