Welcome to my website !
I am research scientist (Investigador Científico) at the Spanish CSIC, affiliated to the Instituto de Políticas y Bienes Públicos (IPP), since 2023. Before I worked as tenured scientist (Chargé de Recherche) at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), attached to the Bordeaux School of Economics, where I am still affiliated.
My research interests cover economic geography, innovation economics, migration, and intellectual property, and more recently, the diffusion/adoption of green technologies and products
I am research affiliate at the Regional Quantitative Analysis Research Group (AQR-IREA) at the University of Barcelona, and external research fellow at the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (CReAM) - UCL. I am now a Fellow of the Institute Convergence Migrations and member of Migration, Business & Society.
Recently I run the TKC project on the topic of migration & innovation, and coodinated the Workshop Series on migration, innovation, and the knowledge economy. I currently participate in the DOC-TRACK project, on STEM doctoral graduates' patenting and publishing in four European countries.
I've been consultant on economic geography, migration & innovation, and gender & innovation for the European Patent Office, the USPTO, and the World Intellectual Property Organization.
