Her research interests are in the field of supply chain management and include buyer/ supplier relationships, supplier development, collaboration, alliance formation, implementation and dissolution.Current research has been concerned with investigating SMEs and their relations with customers and retailers. Recently, I have been interested in the use of social network techniques to better understand these complex relations.
