Her PhD research uses mixed-method methodology to investigate the role of multiple channels of knowledge spillovers on innovation within knowledge-intensive cluster in developing countries. Alice has involved in several research and consultancy activities. In 2018, she acted as the lead researcher in a research project about university-industry technology transfer via university incubators, funded by the Information Technology Park, Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh city (VNU-HCM/ITP).

Research Expertise and Interests

Alice's PhD research examines the knowledge spillovers (spin-off/entrepreneurship and social network channels) and innovation phenomenon within a knowledge services cluster in developing countries. Her publication in Management and Organization Review (an ABS 3*) demonstrates multiple pathways for spin-off firms to strategically utilize knowledge spillovers channels to introduce new service innovations. It also entails practical implications in terms of upgrading opportunities for firms in developing countries.

Alice's research is inter-disciplinary. Her current research projects are organizational innovation, innovativeness of female entrepreneurs, search behaviour and ambidexterity.
