PhD Research supervision

My research background is rather eclectic, and I am always open to engage with new research ideas, as long as they are interesting. I am particularly keen on topics where significant contributions to theory can be made. I expect PhD candidates should disseminate their research in international conferences and subsequently publish it in a leading international journal.

Current research topics include:

  • Open innovation
  • Family Businesses
  • Internationalization of R&D and innovation.

However, I am open to supervise dissertation in other topics, as long as they are relevant and intellectually challenging.

Preferred methods

My background is quantitative methods, in particular:

  • panel data models such as:
    • mixed-effects models
    • generalised method of moments
    • survival analysis and
  • multivariate analysis such as:
    • ANOVA
    • cluster analysis
    • factor analysis
    • multivariate regression.
