I was born in Rianxo, a seaside village in the southwest coast of Galicia. After graduating at the University of Santiago de Compostela, I followed the doctoral programme at IDEGA and the support ETIC doctoral courses sponsored by the E.U., with short stays in Maastricht and Strasburg. On May 10th, 2002, I earned a European Doctorate in Business Organization. I have also studied and carried out research stays in places like the Århus Business School (Denmark), UNISINOS in São Leopoldo (Porto Alegre-Brasil), ISCTE in Lisbon, CRIC in Manchester, Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona and Universidad Carlos III in Madrid.
I currently work full time for the University of Vigo. Together with other colleagues and PhD students in REDE, my research focuses on the efficient management of the processes involved in organizational and technological innovation. I also lecture undergraduate courses related to these topics in majors like (depending on the academic year) Business Management, Economics and Industrial Engeneering. My main focus in posgraduate education is linked to the Doctoral Program in Economic Analysis and Business Strategy. Additionally, I am a member of the Galician Economic and Social Council since 2007.
Finally, I am involved with my wife, Marta, in three long term challenging projects: their names are Sabela, Daniel and Mauro.
