My research concerns the internationalization of firms; how firms expand into foreign markets. I especially focus on how firms can use their networks to gain knowledge and other resources that will reduce risks and create opportunities in their international operations, and thereby improve their overall performance.
Presently my studies focus on the biotechnology industry and the commercialization process of biotechnology inventions. I study the personal and business networks involved in this process. I aim to map the different factors which influence this process such as individuals, businesses, institutions and resources. The results will provide us with a more in depth understanding of what makes biotech firms commercially successful.
I have a Ph. D. in Business Administration from Uppsala University.
