DICE lecturer wins prestigious Chinese award for e-commerce research


An associate lecturer within the department of Digital Innovation and Creative Enterprise (DICE) at GSM London has won first prize for his co-authored research on Chinese cross-border e-commerce enterprises.

Narayan Bhattarai, who teaches Information Systems Management and IT at the College, is also a PhD student at the Royal Holloway, University of London. His research – entitled research title is 'Research on the Localisation of Chinese Cross-Border E-Commerce Enterprises during Belt and Road Construction' - was conducted jointly with three Royal Holloway students.

The team won first prize in the 15th Challenge Cup National Undergraduate Extracurricular Academic Science and Technology Contest – thought to be one of the most prestigious events in China. 

“E-commerce is one of the very important topics within the modules of IT and IMS which I teach to my students at GSM London,” said Narayan. “And Chinese cross-border e-commerce has been taken as a case to assess how the most awaited Chinese Belt and Road Construction mission may impact on it.” 

His research area is Entrepreneurship, and his PhD is entitled 'Migrant Entrepreneurs and the Digital Economy in the UK'. Narayan hopes to complete his PhD in 2020.
