Deputy Head, Laboratory for Economics of Innovation, Associate Professor

National Research University Higher School of Economics

I have about 15 years of research, teaching and policy advice experience in the field of Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (STI). That includes expertise in national and international statistics of STI and skills in developing and promoting new indicators to capture fuzzy and complex socio-economic phenomena using both traditional and novel data sources.

I am always open to discussing the complexity of STI and the comprehensive context of innovation and development.

My foci:

  • Measurement of Science, Technology and Innovation, Innovation Surveys, Composite Indexes and Scoreboards. Micro, macro- and meso-level indicators to capture development, change, technological upgrading, dissemination of advanced production technologies and organizational practices.
  • Performance of innovation systems, efficiency of mechanisms and linkages; industry-science cooperation and open innovation; patterns of innovation behavior, taxonomies of innovation, eco-innovation strategies; evidence for systemic and diagnosis-based innovation policy.
  • (Micro-)econometrics of Science, Technology and Innovation, Machine learning-enabled studies of STI and Digital trace of STI.
