Research and Teaching Interests:

My research interests center on how economic and non-economic factors affect regional economic development and flows of labor, products and technology. I am particularly interested in investigating how non-economic factors, such as cultural background, ethnic differences, norms and institutions, can influence an individual firm’s location and behavior in various ways. My research interests are evolving towards differentiated strategies for regional economic development through co-operations among different agents, such as individual businesses, research institutions and local governments.
