Research and Teaching Interests

I am a corporate strategy scholar studying how corporate development activities (internal development/alliancing/acquisitions/divestitures) facilitate decision making and address various dilemmas faced by firms to improve performance and the likelihood of survival during periods of technological change. My research contributes to scholarly literature on corporate scope and technological change and has practical implications for managers in global business environments who must overcome technological change to optimize firm level outcomes.

My teaching interests include courses in strategic management, technology/innovation strategy, international business, entrepreneurship and organization theory.
