I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate from IESE Business School. My research interest lies in sustainable innovation management. In particular, I study how firms should respond to market pressures in order to develop new products in a responsible way. Additionally, I am interested in analyzing how consumers react to the introduction of new products, and how they are optimizing their consumption patterns to reduce waste. Therefore, my main goal is to understand how firms and consumers can work together to release and consume products in a more sustainable way.
Prior to my academic career, I worked for a period of four years as an environmental consultant based in Panama City, Panama. During that period, I had the opportunity to advise a total of 190 companies that were located in Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia, Peru, and Mexico. My main objective was to assess their operations in order to help them comply with local and international regulations.
I am happy to share that I will join Aalto University’s Department of Industrial Engineering and Management as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Spring 2021.
