I am a Lecturer in Innovation Management and New Product Development at the Strategy, Marketing, and Innovation subject group. My main research area focuses on how the use of manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing or IoT based systems enable innovation.


I achieved an MSc in Business and Management at BAL school in Portsmouth where I also completed a PhD on the adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies and their potential for innovation. Along my career I have managed my own business in the creative industries sector and worked as a manager in different contexts. As a production manager I developed great interest in production environments going from technology use to product development.

Research interests

My current research is essentially in the context of innovation management, in particular on how manufacturing technologies enable different levels of innovation.

Among these, I have been delivering lectures and seminars on the modules “Contemporary issues of Product and Service Development”, "Managing Product Portfolios",  and on the MSc “Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship”.
