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 started my academic career as a research fellow at University of Granada and I am visiting lecturer at Aston Business School. 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 the implementation of advance servitization in different industries. I have published articles in specialized scientific journals (JCR / ABS) and I have presented my research works in several international conferences.
