Personal profile

Research

My PhD research is part of a project called 'Getting out of the Technology Trap: Foreign Direct Investment and Learning among African-owned Firms', AFRICAP for short. It aims to explore Ethiopian-owned firms and their investment in learning. By focusing on the Ethiopian floriculture export sector, the research examines under what condition local firms invest in learning/ get out of learning traps. The study applies Technological Capabilities approach to industrialization and Global Value Chain to  unpack firm-level efforts within the specificity of the industry and GVC in which they operate, as well as national and global contextual factors that shape such efforts and their outcomes.
