Personal profile

Research Focus

Claire Kilpatrick is a PhD student at Queen's Management School. 

Claire's research is centred in International Business and will explore how two megatrends - artificial intelligence (AI) and sustainable development – combine to influence the global strategies of multinational enterprises. By transforming business practices and relationships along global value chains, AI offers an exciting opportunity to augment the global sustainability efforts of multinational enterprises. However, unintended consequences, such as job loss from automation, exacerbation of the digital divide and significant increases in energy requirements, could hinder sustainable development. Considering these developments, the research aims to explore how managers leverage and exploit AI to enhance the global sustainability efforts of their multinational enterprises.
