Research

I am interested in three broad topics: internationalization, capabilities, and governance. In internationalization, I study how firms can succeed in their foreign expansion, especially emerging-market multinationals. In capabilities, I study how companies upgrade their capabilities, especially technological ones, to become internationally competitive. In governance, I study how firm ownership and boards affect its behavior and how firms deal with corruption. 

My main geographical area of expertise is Latin America, but r
ecently I have started analyzing firms in Asia. I have done fieldwork and interviewed managers in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ireland, Nicaragua, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and the US. 

This figure illustrates my research streams. Although the research streams overlap and some of the publications straddle several topics, I nevertheless classify each publication into one of the three main areas of research.   


I have published or have accepted for publication 7 books, 60 journal articles, of which 18 appear in the FT-50 list, and 35 book chapters. Some of the papers are available from my ssrn author page. A list of citations appears on my Google Scholar page



Internationalization 

My main research stream is internationalization, particularly of emerging market multinationals. I study how home country's characteristics, such as weak institutions and pro-market reforms, affect the firm’s internationalization, and how firms solve their internationalization challenges. 

Book, journal articles and book chapters related to this research stream are the following:

Capabilities 

I am interested in analyzing how firms upgrade their capabilities to levels of international competitiveness so that they can become successful multinationals. This research interest started with my dissertation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In it, I studied how firms upgrade their resources after pro-market reforms. I continued analyzing ways in which firms upgrade their capabilities, paying particular attention to technological capabilities.

Governance 

I am also interested in corporate governance. This started with my dissertation at the University of Salamanca, in which I analyzed the private objectives of shareholders. From there I studied codes of good governance; how ownership affects strategy, focusing on state-ownership and business groups; and how to deal with corruption abroad.
