Personal profile


I am a Lecturer at the School of Strategy and Leadership, Coventry University (U.K.). I hold a PhD in Business Management (University of Granada) and a MSC in Economics & International Management (University of Granada & SRH Hochschule Berlin). My background is in Civil Engineering (MEng) and I have practical experience working in private sector for a large engineering company (SACYR). I am visiting lecturer at Aston Business School. I have published articles in specialized scientific journals (JCR / ABS) and I have presented my research works in several international conferences.

Research Interests

My current research interests revolve around business model innovation, operational changes and new organizational forms in the digital economy. Particularly, I am interested in the strategic challenges that data management is creating for both organizations and customers. Also, my research tries to shed light on data-driven value creation and capture, and the implementation of advanced servitization in different industries.
