Yama Temouri

My research interests are mainly international economics and trade, particularly the economics of multinational enterprises and its impacts on host and home economies. I am particularly interested in issues to do with productivity, outsourcing/offshoring activities and employment dynamics. I am currently working on the links between institutional quality, FDI and firm performance
