I am an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at the Department of Economics and Business, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). 

I obtained my Ph.D. in Management at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Before joining UPF, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Strategic Management Department at IESE Business School and a visiting fellow at Texas A&M University. 

My research interests include corporate strategy, diversification, market entry & exit, resource allocation, and business models. My work has been published or is forthcoming in leading management journals such as Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Academy of Management Discoveries, and has been awarded several prizes from the international research community, including the Corporate Strategy IG Best Paper Award from the Strategic Management Society and the Distinguished Paper Award from the Academy of Management.
