PhD Research

My PhD work, currently at fieldwork stage, will propose and test a theory, cultural (un)translatability, as a framework to describe a spectrum of varying degrees of cultural differences, in particular, senses of values (“cultural values”) and culturally-driven business practices including decision-making activities.

Research Interest

International business management, cross-cultural studies, corporate finance / banking / credit analysis in a real-world context, translation studies.
