I am an Assistant Professor at Universidad de los Andes School of Management (Bogotá, Colombia) and a Research Affiliate at the Sociotechnical Systems Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I have a PhD in Economics and Policy Studies of Technological Change from UNU-MERIT and Maastricht University. 


I am an economist interested in innovation and technological change. I analyze data on patents, technology performance and industry output to understand drivers and directions of technological change and its wider effect on the economy. I am convinced that for our findings to be truly relevant for policy and managerial decisions, we need to test the predictive power of our models.
