My research mainly focuses on two agents in the knowledge sector of the economy: research scientists and entrepreneurial firms. The work on entrepreneurial firms focus on the role of two different but crucial factors in shaping entrepreneurial behaviors: individual’s social relationships and the institutional context. My work spans two types of “creative destruction": the positive one of knowledge creation and commercialization and the negative one of illegal activities such as financial fraud. I also study the competition dynamics between domestic and foreign firms, particularly in the context of China.
