Research interests

My research interest grows out of my professional experience and personal journey. My research is driven by the realisation that the human factors in general, and cultural factors in particular. The central aim of my research is to discover and examine the ways in which social and cultural, and other human factors shape the adoption and use of information technology for online teaching.

My broader research project aims to advance our understanding of the phenomenon of women and social entrepreneurship by exploring the influence of socio-cultural and individual factors on women entrepreneurs in Asia. The research investigates these women’s entrepreneurial intentions and venture creation behaviours, as well as how the behaviours have changed over time.
