Hi! Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor at Universidad Alberto Hurtado, Faculty of Business and Economics, in Santiago de Chile.
My primary research areas are Technology and Innovation Management and Business Strategy. In particular, I am interested in understanding the determinants and the consequences a firm’s decision to license out its intellectual property to other companies. A recurrent theme that I have addressed is the relationship between the licensing-out strategy and firm performance (both before and after licensing-out). In addition, I have also tried to shed light on the factors affecting the licensing trade-off (i.e. the balance between benefits and costs associated with a licensing decision) and to explore in detail how the licensor’s bargaining power affects the returns from licensing. My research has been published in journals like Technovation and Industry and Corporate Change.
Regarding teaching I have 10 years of experience at the undergraduate level (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Universidad Alberto Hurtado), 3 years of experience at the postgraduate level (IEDE Business School-Universidad Europea de Madrid, Universidad Alberto Hurtado and Universidad Andrés Bello) and I have developed as a responsable professor two online courses (IEDE Business School - Universidad Europea de Madrid).
In an attempt to be updated and constantly improve, I just have finished the course Mastering Design Thinking in the Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan.
