Professor Jandhyala received her PhD in multinational management from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009. Her research examines the impact of government institutions and policies on international investment strategy. It is motivated by the related questions of how governments create an institutional environment to sustain economic activity and how firms respond to and influence their institutional environments (or the lack of them). Specifically, she studies how international investment regimes are established and why countries vary in the enforcement of their legal and international obligations. Her recent work examines firms’ investment responses to their de facto institutional environments and the role of experience in mitigating the threats posed by the lack of institutional support. Professor Jandhyala’s research addresses issues surrounding international property rights, intellectual property, and technology industries. She has presented her research at numerous international conferences on international business, management and political science. Her work has been recognized by the Academy of International Business and the Academy of Management. In addition to these associations, she is also a member of the American Political Science Association and the International Studies Association.
