I am a senior assistant professor at the department of industrial economics at Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden. I graduated with a PhD in sociology both from the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France and the University of Manchester, UK. My research interests lie in the positive externalities of innovation. Notably, I develop research on increasing returns on technological change (ex. diffusion of new technology), human capital effect on innovation (i.e. user innovation, the role of invention vs. innovation, knowledge worker) and their effects on growth.
