Haina has extensive international research and teaching experience and has led a wide range of international research projects involving collaborations with overseas institutions and businesses and has also published research findings in world-recognised journals as well as serving in editorial roles across high-impact international journals.
Her research interest focuses on international management, organizational behaviour, human resource management, and leadership. She has published her research in the leading journals, including in the Journal of Management, Human Resource Management, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Journal of Vocational Behaviour, Journal of Business Ethics and Asia Pacific Journal of Management. She is currently leading an interdisciplinary research project funded by SFC GCRF, studying organizational resilience to tackle grand challenges in the contemporary world.
My research primarily focuses on providing an ontological understanding of human practices in organizations and business through an interdisciplinary theoretical lens and methodological approach (i.e., integrating areas of philosophy, sociology, psychology, and business management). I am interested in investigations of cultural and/or institutional impacts on organizational behaviours, leadership approaches, and entrepreneurial activities.
My work also uses mixed methods, i.e., both qualitative and quantitative methods, to study individual performance both at workplace and family domain through empirically examining human psychology, organizational behaviours and leadership. My work, with these methodological approaches, also examines organizational performance in relations to innovation approaches and leadership practices.
