He previously worked as a business consultant and investment analyst in Hong Kong and as a lecturer at the Smurfit Business School, University College Dublin and Cairnes Business School, National University of Ireland, Galway. He completed his PhD on ‘strategic industrial networks’ at the Judge Institute of Management Studies, University of Cambridge. He researches on multinational subsidiary strategy, industrial clusters and technological and international entrepreneurship and has published his research in a number of journals such as Regional Studies, European Journal of International Management, Organizational Research Methods and World Economy.

Paul is interested in how a multinational subsidiary strategically guides its evolution within its internal corporate and external knowledge networks. Of further interest is how multinational subsidiaries actively shape knowledge and institutions in their host environments over time and how entrepreneurial ecosystems emerge and prosper in such a host region. He is also interested in how international new ventures access global markets via their developed networks.

He is particularly concerned with the medical technology and digital animation industries. Click here for more Thought Leadership
