I am a political economist specialising in innovation policy for emerging technologies. I focus on complex innovation systems and policies affecting long-term, transformative, and value-creating technologies at the intersection of clean-tech and artificial intelligence, so-called multi-technology innovation. My work combines insights from innovation studies, public administration, and political economy. Recently, I acted as a consultant on projects related to innovation policy, green technologies, and industrial strategy.

Currently, I am a researcher and PhD candidate at the Department of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Public Policy at University College London (UCL STEaPP), fully funded by the EPSRC, where I also teach 'Public Administration'. I hold a Bachelor of Science from the London School of Economics and a Master of Philosophy from the University of Oxford, where I was affiliated with St. Antony's College. For queries regarding collaboration, consultancy, or details about my CV, please contact me directly.



The main theme of my doctoral research project is 'multi-technology challenges'. These concern issues where socio-economic problems are intended to be solved by technologies, which are in themselves complex compilations of multiple sub-systems. Examples include smart energy, autonomous vehicles, or smart agri-tech. Because such innovations involve multiple stakeholders in large networks and aim at improving life for society, these become political issues as well. Hence, I investigate how policy can coordinate the development and innovation of such multi-tech solutions, making them more efficient and environmentally friendly, accelerating their development, and ultimately, making them more socially beneficial. This work, hence, combines insights from innovation studies, public administration, and political economy.
