Reader in International Business
Dr. Jennifer Johns
Dr. Jennifer Johns’ interdisciplinary research interests are primarily concerned with network approaches to economic development, entrepreneurship and innovation. She has joined Bristol as a Reader in International Business, having previously worked at the University of Liverpool Management School and the University of Manchester.
Jennifer's PhD, obtained from the School of Geography, University of Manchester, examined the agglomeration and production networks of the film and television industries in the North West of England. Whilst studying and working at the University of Manchester Jennifer collaborated on two large ESRC projects on Global Production Networks. The first was the foundational GPN project, the second examined the internationalisation of temporary staffing firms.
Since then Jennifer has continued work on creative industries, focusing on the power relations between network actors and the causes and outcomes of precarity in creative work. She has also conducted empirical research on FabLabs (digital fabrication spaces) in Manchester, London and Barcelona, investigating the use of these spaces by entrepreneurs.
Jennifer's current research focuses on technological change and innovation in global production networks and governance and transparency in supply chains.
