I am a Lecturer in the Innovation Management and Policy division at Alliance Manchester Business School. I received a PhD in economics of innovation from the University of Bordeaux (France). I was a postdoctoral researcher with the School of Innovation Sciences (ECIS) at the Eindhoven University of Technology, and the Social and Decision Sciences Department at Carnegie Mellon University. My research studies innovation processes as the emergence of new ideas, as well as the dissemination/ adoption of these new ideas, with a focus on collective decision-making. My approach includes the use of modeling methods based on evolutionary and complex systems, adapted to social sciences.
