Personal profile

I am a Senior Lecturer in International Business at Leicester Castle Business School at De Montfort University. My research focus is within the International Business domain, in particular, the footloose behaviour of multinational enterprises (MNEs). In my PhD I studied how strategic decisions of the multinationals alter in the context of internal and external forces that influence their investment, divestment and relocation patterns. I have a substantial teaching experience on various levels of undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Currently, I am leading an undergraduate International Business Programme at De Montfort University.
