    Vision Statement

     

    My eclectic interests have developed over time, converging toward the study of phenomena located mostly at the interface of international economics, international economic development and international business. These include the macroeconomic environment, foreign direct investment (FDI), trade, the role of exchange rates, and outsourcing/off-shoring. These phenomena have been over-theorised over past decades, with too much model building and insufficient emphasis on testing the assumptions of underlying hypotheses. I prefer applied research because I am more interested in uncovering what happens in the real world by letting the data tell much of the story. The spark for any particular research project always stems from the identification of a knowledge gap within a particular debate. The challenge of addressing an issue that has been overlooked in previous work fills me with excitement and I truly enjoy the thrill of discovery. I also see considerable potential in both cross- and inter-disciplinary work; research that benefits from theoretical contributions from multiple disciplines or that draws from different methodological traditions, holds great potential for a better understanding of complex phenomena and for producing significant insights.
