What I'm Working On

My research interests are focused on understanding the sources of interorganizational differences in performance. My work suggests that the manner in which a multinational enterprise structures its investments to manage the institutional uncertainty precipitated by foreign market corruption exerts a positive impact on the survival of the firm’s overseas subsidiaries. In studying the strategy and structure of multinationals, my research focuses on the strategic decisions that they implement with respect to equity investment, partnering, and the deployment of human resources. 

On the Personal Side 

I’ve devoted many hours of ice time to coaching my sons’ minor hockey teams over the past ten years in London, Ont. Early morning practices, road trips and the thrill of competition are all experiences we’ve shared. As we get connected with the Kingston hockey community, my sons (above, left to right, Cam and Jake) and I have been enjoying some ice time at City Hall and other local rinks.
