    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My research focuses on how to improve individual and collective performance, in those cases where the alignment of aims and preferences is not possible, unattainable or even unnecessary. I am currently studying the development of sustainable communities of micro-producers, so that they are more resistant to global and / or local logistical challenges. Therefore, I am exploring different human and technological interfaces, within different supply arrangements, that may increase the propensity of individuals to collaborate. In short, my current research is at the intersection of issues such as human performance, technology and sustainable operations.

    I am totally committed to the development and maintenance of international links with universities and professional organizations around the world, with a special emphasis in Latin America. Consequently, I maintain collaborative networks and links with academic and professional institutions and companies, mainly in Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Spain, where I have developed projects and given conferences and short courses.
