Research and Impact...

The road less traveled to my research output...

Academic Research


My research has appeared on the Academy of Management Perspectives, The Economist, Harvard Business Review, Singapore Management Review, Corporate Governance, just to name few. I aim at exploring the nexus between social sciences and economic theory, with a strong emphasis on practitioner's approaches and developments, so that the work can be relevant and modern. A large component of my current research goes around the creation of economic development through clusters and cluster policies.

The purpose of my research is to advance both the academic community than the practitioner one. With strong emphasis on the applicability of the research, as a boundary spanner towards new frontiers, my research is provocative, exploratory, phenomenological, qualitative and case study based.
