“I have had a productive academic career that has encompassed living and working in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. I did my graduate work at the Stern School of Business, New York University where I obtained a Ph.D. degree in International Business.  My interest in exploring the impact of cultural differences developed and grew as I experienced and moved across different cultures.
