Short bio

I am a Full Professor at the Catholic University of the North (UCN). My academic journey began with a degree in computer engineering, and I subsequently embarked on a career in information technology. Over the years, I've worked as a project manager, overseeing the implementation of ERP systems, and held the role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) in various organizations. 
I started my career as an educator in Valparaiso. In pursuit of academic excellence, I completed my Master of Science in Management at the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso in Chile. To further expand my horizons, I pursued a Ph.D. at the University of Seville in Spain, with my doctoral thesis focusing on the field of information systems. I also had the privilege of conducting a research stay at the Department of Business Information Systems at AUT's Business School in New Zealand.
My primary research interests revolve around the domain of information technology, both at the organizational and individual levels. Throughout my career, I've collaborated with esteemed researchers from various countries, including Chile, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, and Peru. My research has a particular emphasis on technology acceptance models and data science.
To date, I have authored more than a hundred publications in internationally indexed journals. Some of my contributions can be found in journals such as the Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, Computers & Education, Telematics and Informatics, Journal of Research in Interactive Marketing, Industrial Management & Data Systems, and Technological Forecasting and Social Change, among others.
