The John H. Dunning Visiting Fellowship
We are pleased to announce the John H. Dunning visiting fellows
for the 2017-18 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning
Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School,
University of Reading. We received 15 applications for the
program for this year, from a variety of applicants across the
world. A committee consisting of Mark Casson, James Walker,
Davide Castellani and Rajneesh Narula reviewed the applications.
The Fellows for 2017 -18 are:
Ma, Associate Professor of the Department
of Management, and Director of the Center
for Entrepreneurship at the Chinese University of Hong Kong
(CUHK). Xufei received
his PhD in business policy and strategy from NUS Business
University of Singapore. His research interests lie in
international strategies of multinational and entrepreneurial
firms in and from
emerging economies. He has published his research in leading
management and IB
journals such as Strategic Management Journal, Journal

Management Journal, and Journal
of Management, among others. He is currently serving as

Vittoria G. Scalera, Assistant Professor of International Management at the University of Amsterdam Business School. She received her Ph.D. from the Politecnico di Milano School of Management. She has been a visiting scholar at the Fox School of Business, Temple University (2013-2014) and at the Henley Business School, University of Reading (2017). Her research mainly lies at the intersection between international business and innovation management, where she focuses on innovation strategies in multinational firms, international knowledge sourcing, global innovation networks, and emerging countries’ technological catch-up. She is also interested in the international strategy and performance of government-owned institutions. Her studies appear or are forthcoming in leading academic journals, including Journal of Product Innovation Management, Industrial and Corporate Change, Journal of International Management, Small Business Economics and Industrial Marketing Management, among others.
The visiting fellowship programme is aimed at creating opportunities for researchers at the early-to-mid stages of their career to visit and collaborate with academics at the Centre, and to utilise resources associated with the John H. Dunning Library. Dunning Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in the field of international business (broadly defined), and with an inclination towards multi-disciplinary and theory-driven research, in the tradition of John Dunning. Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year (between September and June).
