ABOUT


Currently I am an Assistant Professor in Entrepreneurship at Durham University Business School (DUBS). In addition, I am affiliated as a Research Fellow in the Centre for University Entrepreneurship (Centre d’Iniciatives Emprenedores Universitàries CIEU-UAB–); as an Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB); and as a Junior Research Fellow in the Institute for Development Strategies at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (IDS-SPEA, Indiana University). I participate in different research and consulting projects at UAB (e.g. GUESSS-UAB - Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students' Survey), and Fundación ECSIM Centro de Estudios en Economía Sistémica. I also sit on the Editorial Board of the journal Cogent Business & Management.

I received a degree in Economics from Universidad de Antioquia, a M.Sc. in Economics from Universidad EAFIT, a M.Phil. in Applied Research in Economics & Business MAREB- and a Ph.D. in Economics & Business (route Entrepreneurship & Management -IDEM-) from UAB. During my Ph.D. studies, I was Visiting Scholar in the IDS-SPEA at Indiana University.

I am mainly interested in the effects of entrepreneurial activity and innovation on economic growth and development under the institutional lenses. Some of my research has been published in various international journals such as Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Small Business Economics, and Journal of Evolutionary Economics, among others.
