I am Full Professor of General Management and Strategy and Director of Research at Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD), Chile, and Visiting Scholar at Universidad de San Andrés, Argentina. At UDD, I am a board member of the School of Business and Economics and VP and a board member at the Iberoamerican Academy of Management.

Before 2010 I taught at Universidad de los Andes ESE (Business School) in Santiago, Chile, and at Universidad Pompeu Fabra EADA (Business School) in Barcelona, Spain.


I completed an MA in Science and Technology Management at Universidad Carlos III, Madrid, Spain, and received my Ph.D. in Business Administration from IESE Business School, Barcelona, Spain.

With a special interest in Latin America, my primary fields of research are social sustainability, such as gender, as well as strategy, leadership, social networks, corporate governance, international business, and business history. I have authored book chapters and academic articles in leading journals, including Global Strategy Journal, Journal of Business Research, Harvard Business Review, Business History, Enterprise and Society, Business History Review, Corporate Governance: an International Review, Harvard Deusto Business Review, Academy of Management Proceedings, and IESE Insights among others.

Some of the most important fellowships and research grants I have been awarded have been from Universidad Carlos III, Madrid, Spain, IESE Business School-Universidad de Navarra, Spain, and the Argentinean and Chilean National Commissions for Scientific and Technological Research. In 2012-13 I was the GCEE Fellow at Babson College in Massachusetts and in 2017-18 I held the fellowship “Alfred Chandler” at Harvard Business School. I was visiting professor at Macquarie University in Sydney.  My research was funded by the Australia-APEC Women Research Fellowship
