In her PhD, Dr Chen empirically explore the differentiation, interdependence and co-evolution towards increasing complexity of the strategy choices of foreign subsidiaries of multinational corporations (MNCs) and their functional value-adding activities. The evolution towards strategic complexity suggests further strategy interdependence between subsidiaries and functional activities, and the emergence of MNCs with increasingly differentiated networks of value-adding activities rather than the 'normative' transnational, heterarchical or multifocal MNCs.

Her research interests include:

  • International business strategy
  • Multinational enterprises based in emerging markets
  • Multinational networks and subsidiaries
  • Value chain activities
