RESEARCH AND TEACHING:
Research interests include private equity, venture capital, emerging markets, innovation ecosystems, competitive strategy, innovation management, corporate entrepreneurship, value creation, and technology transfer.
For the last year, I have focused mainly on collecting and processing more data through databases and multivariate analysis for my quantitative research. I have collected more data on 399 firms in 27 countries investing in research and development (R&D) and corporate venture capital (CVC) in six business sectors. I've also investigated CVC and its interaction term with R&D to identify complementarity instead of a substitution effect between both sources of innovation and knowledge acquisition. I have also been conducting qualitative research interviewing the following organizations: Alcan EP, Cisco, PSA Peugeot-Citroen, Nestlé, EPFL, and Credit Suisse. Regarding my recent experience conducting a postdoc at Columbia Business School, I was able to lecture to Executive MBAs.
