Overview


Research

I have published scientific papers in a variety of academic journals, namely: Atlantic Economic Journal, Australian Economic Papers, Australasian Journal of Regional Studies, Cogent Economics & Finance, Economic Analysis and Policy, Economics of Innovation and New Technology, International Finance Review, Journal of Economics and Economic Education Research, Journal of Reviews of Global Economics, Journal of Socio-economics, Prometheus, and Review of Economic Studies.

The paper "Social Innovation: Buzzword or Enduring Term?" jointly written with Professor Simon Ville has been cited in 473 related articles (Google search on 11 January 2018)

Teaching

I have extensive experience in teaching economics and mathematical economics at both graduate and undergraduate levels. I started my academic career as a tutor in the Faculty of Economic Sciences at the University of Buenos Aires in October 1965, and attained the position of full-time full-professor at this University in September 1976. I had the position of Professor of Microeconomics until my departure to Australia in 1987. I won the Faculty of Commerce Teaching and Learning Innovation Award 2008 at the University of Wollongong for the creation of the subject The Creative Economy.

I have published twelve books in Spanish and two books in English, An Introduction to Economics with Emphasis on Innovation (Second Edition, Thomson Learning, 2006) and An Introduction to the Creative Economy (Second Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2007), both jointly written with Professor Peter Carroll.
