She has already published research in this area, where her specialist capabilities in network analysis are making valuable methodological contributions (see Amighini and Gorgoni, forthcoming in World Economy), which are likely to be influential on international policy developments.

Dr Gorgoni has also conducted research on foreign direct investment from emerging countries, innovation networks, clusters of SMEs and global value chains.
