Senior Lecturer

PhD Supervision

Applications for PhD are welcome from candidates interested in strategic management and who have a strong academic background. I am interested in supervising doctoral students that share my interest in the micro-level aspects of competitive strategy, in particular in regards to the development, replication and change of knowledge, routines and capabilities in organizations. I am interested in research both in small and medium sized businesses as well as large MNEs.
