Personal profile

Research Interests

 My main research interests lie in the broad fields of international business, entrepreneurship, and strategic management, focusing on resource mobilization strategies, entrepreneurial behavior, and inter-organizational relationships, strategic management of SMEs, strategic foresight, Innovation Management, and developing economies and emerging markets. I draw on a broad range of theories like the social network theory, the resource-based theories, institutional theory, etc. as a meta-theoretical lens for my research. My research has appeared in top international journals and conferences. I am a member of a range of professional organisations including the Academy of Management, Strategic Management Society, and the British Academy of Management. I am keen to work with Ph.D. students and collaborate with researchers interested in entrepreneurship, international business and strategy in developing economies and emerging markets. 



I am a Lecturer in International Business and Associate Course Director for FBL Erasmus Programme at the School of Strategy and Leadership, Coventry University. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). I have been involved extensively in the Teaching and Learning activities at UK HEs where I teach and lead Modules both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
