I am a Researcher with the ZEW - Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research in Mannheim, Germany. I am interested in the empirical analysis of issues related with the economics of innovation, in particular policy evaluation, patent indicators, productivity, and the effects of import competition. My work is characterized by the combination of unique micro data, the appropriate use of econometric technique, and methodological advancements. Since one and a half decades I regularly visit East-Asia, and China in particular. My current research agenda is concerned with China’s development towards an innovation-driven economy and the impact of this on Europe.
