I am an economist and historian with academic interests in the overlapping areas of business history and international business, as well as economic history and development economics. In business history, my current research focuses on (a) headquarter-subsidiary relations in MNEs and the strategic responses of both to risk in host countries, and (b) market development and perceptions of corporate social responsibility in Indonesia. My current research in international business relates to (a) the organisation and strategy of Japanese firms and their subsidiaries in Southeast Asia, and (b) barriers to trade and investment between Australia and the countries of the European Union. In economic history, ny research focuses on the explnanation of long-term economic growth in Indonesia, particularlythe role of institutions in market development. In development economics my current research interest is the nexus of international food aid and trade to less-developed countries in Asia.
