    Personal profile

    Research Overview:

    My research primarily focuses on providing an ontological understanding of human practices in organizations and business through an interdisciplinary theoretical lens and methodological approach (i.e., integrating areas of philosophy, sociology, psychology, and business management). I am interested in investigations of cultural and/or institutional impacts on organizational behaviours, leadership approaches, and entrepreneurial activities.

    My work also uses mixed methods, i.e., both qualitative and quantitative methods, to study individual performance both at workplace and family domain through empirically examining human psychology, organizational behaviours and leadership. My work, with these methodological approaches, also examines organizational performance in relations to innovation approaches and leadership practices.

    Research Interests:

    International Management, Human Resource Management, Organizational Behaviour, and Leadership
