My interest and expertise is around business organisations developing capabilities for sustainable strategies and Innovation. In particular how businesses develop inter-organizational linkages for enhancing innovation and also for developing sustainable /socially responsible strategies in Asia. I have also developed expertise around how small and medium enterprises (SMEs), particularly those located in 'regional clusters', develop linkages or form networks for their business strategies and innovation. I have done work in the above area in the context of Malaysia, India and South Korea.
