Recently, she has been working on a large-scale project looking at the internationalisation processes of high-tech start-ups. She has co-edited two books on qualitative research methods in international business and has published extensively on this topic, including interviewing and the case study. In 2013 she will be editing a special issue of Management International Review on process approaches to studying internationalisation of the firm.
