The primary themes to my research are Innovation Management and Technology Capability Analysis. This has led to the development of projects on the acquisition and impact of new technological competences on organisations, and national systems of technology transfer (Iran and Malaysia). More generally, my interest focuses on two main aspects – the development and effectiveness of collaborative modes of technology transfer, and the impact of information systems/technology on organizational competitiveness.
