Her research is an intersection of different research fields, and she strongly believes there is a need of significant contribution in a cross-boundary knowledge-building approach. For example, entrepreneurial and marketing strategy literature is dominated by organizational level theory, and can be enriched by the integration of individual and interpersonal knowledge. Furthermore, she is interested in the management problem of how individual employees influence the successful development and implementation of a strategic orientation.
