“I have co-authored many articles and book chapters on personality and social psychology, focusing on the ways we perceive others and interact with them in consequence. I am intrigued by how situations, including cultural backgrounds of the persons interacting, affect the outcomes of these exchanges, for better or for worse. I am currently exploring cultural variations in the centrality of work in a person’s life and its implications for their well-being and eager to explore such topics with incoming DBA students.”

“I enjoy supervising and working with my DBA students on their projects. I also find joy in the process of motivating and mentoring students to explore different ideas and to contribute scholarly knowledge through their DBA theses. Witnessing these contributions is wonderful, and I have successfully supervised over 15 DBA/DMgt students in the past 15 years, mainly with respect to integrating the theoretical work of management information systems and operations management with a theoretical and managerial orientation to enhance the competitiveness and productivity of the industrial and business sectors. The recent research I conducted with my DBA students investigates the effects of flexibility and supply chain agility on firm performance, the role of social capital creation on customer relationship performance, and the effects of e-loyalty programs and social media marketing activities on brand relationship quality. All of these projects are fascinating to work with alongside the students.”

“The PolyU DBA is unique; one of the flagship academic programs in the entire university. Most business school degrees are either focused on academic research or on practical applications. The DBA program is a true blend of these approaches. Professors bring a trove of knowledge about academic investigations of the topic, while the students bring a wealth of information, knowledge, and experiences about the practical application. The result is a rigorous, challenging, and enlightening experience for all involved that results frequently in ground-breaking thesis research from the new 'scholar executives'.”

“Teaching DBA / DMgt classes is a demanding yet rewarding experience. These classes are full of established entrepreneurs and senior business executives who will not take academic research studies for granted. Dynamic interactions and heated discussions are the ways to confront and integrate theoretical and scientific analysis with real world business issues. Through such process, we work together to advance our understanding of the value and relevance of theoretical concepts and empirical findings on the one hand, and integrate the rich industrial experiences under unified conceptual frameworks on the other hand. Not only I enjoy so much in teaching and supervising the classes, I also learn and get inspired by them.”

“My first time experience teaching DBA came with a great surprise – the abilities of students in understanding new theories and solving real-world problems through theoretical frameworks surprised me. DBA graduates have the unique capability to combine theoretical knowledge and practical insights through experience, while it is really not easy for any other people to possess both.”
