Research

My research interests are in the areas of R&D and innovation, firm productivity, and university-industry relations.

My current research concerns the impact of cooperation networks (e.g. through alliances with universities, customers, suppliers, and competitors) on innovation performance.

I also examine the role of University Knowledge Transfer Office in supporting Third Mission community engagement activities in the United Kingdom.
