My research interests are situated in the field of economics of innovation and center around the connection between firm level innovation and IPRs. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Danish Center for Studies in Research and Research Policy (CFA) since December 2018. At the CFA I am involved in projects focusing on business region economics and measurement of knowledge capital at the firm level. I obtained my PhD at the KU Leuven in Belgium at the department of management, strategy and innovation (MSI). There I worked at the center of expertise for R&D monitoring (ECOOM) and was involved in conducting innovation surveys. I obtained a degree in commercial engineering at KU Leuven and further obtained, from the same university, an advanced master’s degree in industrial management and a research master in advanced business studies.
