Pao T. Kao received his Ph.D. in December 2013 from the Department of Business Studies at Uppsala University. His thesis involved longitudinal case studies on the market entry processes of three Swedish firms in China between 1980 and 2010 and aimed to understand how recurring changes in regulative institutions in a host market affect the entry of foreign firms. 


Dr. Kao currently holds Postdoc Researcher position in the Department of Business Studies, Uppsala University, founded by Wallanderstipendiat. He has previously taught in the Department of Marketing, I.H. Asper School of Business, University of Manitoba (Canada). He has also been a visiting scholar in the Nordic Centre in Fudan University in 2011. 


Dr. Kao's research mainly concerns Internationalization processes of the firm, changes in the market, institutional and technological environment, and business opportunity discovery and development.


Dr. Kao previously received an MSc in International Business from the University of Nottingham, and an MA in Media and Communications from the University of Westminster.
