  • Ph.D., Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Department of Business at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. I am particularly interested in the analysis of factors affecting entrepreneurship in different contexts, using the institutional approach as a theoretical framework, and combining quantitative and qualitative methodologies. I am author/co-author of different books, book chapters and articles published in leading international academic journals. Also, I am participating in Spanish research projects (“Dynamic capabilities and institutions as determinants of international entrepreneurship" -Spanish Ministry of Economy & Competitiveness- and “Evaluating organizations” -Economy & Knowledge Department -Catalan Government-) and international research projects (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, GEM; Panel Study of entrepreneurial dynamics, PSED; and Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students‘ Survey, GUESSS). Nowadays, I am visiting researcher at the Institute for Business Innovation (Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley).
