Current me

I am a doctoral student at the Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder. My current research interests include corporate strategy, innovation, and employee-level outcomes. I am also studying the internationalization of venture capital firms. Although I teach the typical ‘Strategic Management’ class, my students tend to hear all sort of random geography-related facts.

Besides enjoying what I do for work, I enjoy playing and watching football (the sport known in the U.S. as ‘soccer’). I also like to take pictures. One of the things I enjoy the most, however, is to describe myself as being from the southernmost country in the world.

Since a previous life, I have worked with professor Santiago Mingo in a research project that studies the effects of the institutional environment in private equity and venture capital investments in emerging regions. We have also explored the effects of the structure of the syndication network in these investments. Currently, I am also doing research in the broad field of corporate strategy. In particular, I am studying the effects of corporate acquisitions on innovation and employee-level outcomes, such as mobility, productivity, and collaboration.

I like to go out with my camera and take pictures while listening music. Sometimes I get lucky and find squirrels posing for me.


Among the places I have visited, I think the most remarkable are Cape Horn (Chile), Easter Island (Chile), and the Royal Observatory (Greenwich, UK). Below, a map with some of the places I have visited (just as a reminder to myself!):
