In research I have two main areas of interest: Education and Management.
Related to business, I study the effective use of technology in organizations and their applications to different functional areas, especially relational marketing and mobile business (technlology adoption, m-marketing and m-commerce); In education my main topics are bullying, e-learning, educational innovation and education for development (childhood).
I participate in several research projects results of which have been published in refereed international journals such as Industrial Management and Data Systems (JCR), Journal of Organizacional Computing and Electronic Commerce (JCR),Universia Business Review (JCR)... between others. My last research stays were in University of Vaasa (Finland, 2015) and Turku Universitity (2016) .
