Guest Researchers

The DZHW invites international and national scientists as guest researchers. Guest researchers are interested in topic-specific collaborations with the research areas of the DZHW or the research data centre fdz.DZHW. They usually network at the DZHW for a contractually agreed period while continuing to work at their respective institutions.

    Short CV
    Henry joined ESMT Berlin in May 2017. He is the first holder of the ESMT Chair in Entrepreneurship. Since January 2018 Henry has been the Director of the Institute for Endowment Management and Entrepreneurial Finance (IFEE). Previously he was an associate professor of strategy and innovation and the PhD Coordinator at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Henry explores the role of human capital in science, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Among others, he studies how scientists’ motives and incentives relate to important outcomes such as innovative performance in firms, patenting in academia, or career choices and entrepreneurial interests. In new projects, Henry studies the dynamics of motives and incentives over time, and explores non-traditional innovative institutions such as Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science. Additional work is underway to gain deeper insights into scientific labor markets and to derive implications for junior scientists, firms, and policy makers.

    Short CV
    I am currently doing my second postdoctoral research stay at the KU Leuven where I investigate the causes and effects of inequality in funding for health research among the countries of the European Union. One of the goals of my current project is to translate scientific evidence into useful knowledge for decision makers and the public. During my stay at the DZHW with financing from the Humboldt Foundation, I analyzed the evolution, organization and financing of research on genome technologies. I have previously worked as a lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine of the UNAM in Mexico where I obtained my doctorate in science, winning the Alfonso Caso medal for the best graduate of my generation. To carry out my research, I combine quantitative methods such as the analysis and modeling of complex networks or data mining with qualitative tools such as the critical analysis of academic literature, government documents, news and interviews with key actors.
