PhD (Management)

Biography

Since arriving in New Zealand in 2006, I have studied the growth, internationalisation and innovation in New Zealand SMEs. I have been involved in a series of large scale survey and interview studies that investigated management challenges in SMEs operating from small economies. More recently, I have started to investigate how the economic re-emergence of Asia influences New Zealand SMEs. My research has informed a number of courses at the business school on research methods, entrepreneurship and competing in Asia; as well as practitioner workshops across the country.
