Personal statement

After graduating with a PhD in International Business at Strathclyde Business School (SBS) in 2014, I joined the Department of Strategy and Organisation within SBS as a Teaching Associate. Prior to commencing my doctoral degree in Glasgow, I studied for MSc in Management at Queen's University Belfast and BA (Hons) in International Economics in Technological University of Tajikistan. I teach and coordinate a range of classes on International Business, International Management and International Tourism, and I teach at both undegraduate and postgraduate levels within the Business School.

Alongside teaching, I pursue an active and an inter-disciplinary research agenda. Theoretically, I am interesting in applying the institutional lens to explore the role of institutions on internationalisation of SMEs; I explore SME internationalisation also in terms international entrepreneurship and SME participation in the global economy via Global Value Chains. Empirically, I am interested in the multifaceted context of transition economies, many of which have followed divergent paths in the transition process and thereby provide a fascinating context to refine our knowledge and understanding of the role of institutions (understood both in terms of formal regulatory environments and the more complex and ambiguous informal rules) in international business and international development.
