Lecturer in Innovation Management, Queensland University of Technology

I am a Postdoctoral Research fellow at QUT's Business Faculty. My research and teaching activities centre about the management of technological innovations.

I am particularly interested in the systemic nature of innovation, for instance, when different organisations collaborate in bringing new products and services to the market.

Nowadays we tend to refer to such systems as 'innovation ecosystems', which describe innovation as a collective effort of organisations specialised in their activities, and the co-evolution of these organisations as they interact with one another through symbiotic, mutualistic, and predatory processes.

Such a conceptual framework can be employed to study a wide spectrum of empirical contexts, although my own interest has been on the computer gaming, pharmaceutical, and more recently, the vegan innovation contexts.

I have a B.Eng. degree from the University of Melbourne, and six years of engineering experience at Bosch. I obtained my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Tampere University of Technology (Finland), and later worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Leiden University (The Netherlands), in an EU funded Marie Curie project.

I have been with QUT since February 2015.
