I am a doctoral student at IESE Business School Barcelona (2016-). My current research focuses on business strategy and technological innovation, highlighting inventor-level drivers for firm innovation including collaborations and knowledge networks. Methodologically, I prefer to use natural experiments by combining applied econometrics and "big data."

Recently, I received three awards from Strategic Management Society:
