About me

My team and I conduct research on innovation strategies and capabilities for digital innovation and digital transformation, with a focus on new technologies and university-industry collaboration. My research has been published in leading academic outlets such as the IEEE Technology Engineering Management Journal (IF: 6.146). Moreover, I have been awarded several scholarships, including a doctoral full-time scholarship from the Brazilian Science Without Borders Program, and the Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program in partnership with Stanford University. I am part of the teaching team for the master class called Global Team-based Innovation, which is part of the SUGAR network (https://sugar-network.org/).
