I lead the Innovation and Intellectual Property Management (IIPM) research group at the Centre for Technology Management and Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) at the University of Cambridge.

My research focuses on innovation at the intersection of management sciences and business (micro) economics. I contribute mainly to two areas: Innovation and Intellectual Property (IP) Management as well as Innovation processes for Product-Service System (PSS). With my research I aim to contribute to a sustainable living.

In 2014 I was appointed University Lecturer in Technology and Innovation Management at Division E (Manufacturing and Management), better known as the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) of the Engineering Department at the University of Cambridge.  I am a fellow of the Innovation and Intellectual Property Research Group at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and Affiliate to the Cambridge Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law.

I serve on the Exploitation Committee of CIPA (the Chartered Institute for Patent Attorneys) and I am a member of the UKIPO Research Expert Advisory Group (REAG) for Registered Rights. I also serve on the editorial boards of World Patent Information, the leading journal in the field of Industrial Property information and documentation (IP informatics) and LES Nouvelles, the journal of the Licensing Executive Society. I am board member and Secretary General of the European Institute for Technology and Innovation Management (EITIM). Besides research, I love spending time with my family and have an interest in photography.
