What I Do


Academic research

I am interested in how Venture Capital firms, Business Accelerators and public policy can help mitigate frictions in entrepreneurial markets.

I have worked with corporations, development banks and governments evaluating entrepreneurship- and innovation-related practices and policies.



I teach Corporate Finance for master students, and executive-level courses on Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurship, Private Equity, Project Finance, and Strategy.
