He has a PhD in Economics from the University of Carlos III of Madrid (2000), for which he achieved the highest grade. While studying for his PhD, he had a Ministry of Education and Science Sectoral Programme for the Training of University Teaching and Research Staff fellowship. After a brief stint as Assistant Professor at the Carlos III University of Madrid, he joined the Public University of Navarre. After holding different positions as a teacher and researcher at UPNA, he was granted his full professorship in 2019. He has spent periods at the University of Essex, Arizona State University and Cranfield University.

He has taught Business Organisation throughout his long academic career, teaching different subjects at bachelor’s, master's and PhD level.

His research reflects his interest in the study of people’s decision-making behaviour and particularly that of those working in companies. The research he has conducted for more than 20 years has allowed him to contribute to international scientific debate in the fields of Human Resource Management, Strategic Management, Family Business and Entrepreneurship. This work has been reflected in 48 academic papers, some of which have been published in some of the most prestigious scholarly journals in the field of business organisation, such as the "Academy of Management Journal", "Administrative Science Quarterly", "Strategic Management Journal", "Journal of Management", "Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice", "Journal of International Business Studies", "Small Business Economics" and "Human Resource Management". He has also published four book chapters, participated in the supervision of 4 doctoral theses, given seminars at Spanish and foreign universities, and made more than 80 contributions to national and international conferences. His academic work has been recognised with several awards, including the Prize for the Best Scientific Contribution to Social Sciences for the period 2009-2010 and the Prize for Research Career in the field of Human, Social, Legal and Economic Sciences, both from the Public University of Navarre.

He has taken part in various publicly funded research projects, most notably as Principal Investigator for 3 National R&D Plan projects. He has also been involved in projects to transfer knowledge to businesses and is currently in charge of the Business Organisation research group. In this area, his work as Ministry of Education and Science Expert assessing National Plan research projects is worthy of note.

In the field of management, he has been secretary of the School of Economics and Business Administration and general coordinator of Access to the Public University of Navarre. He was a member of the work group which developed the programme for the Bachelor’s Degree in Economics adapted to the European Higher Education Area and coordinator of subject matter for the Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Business Administration. He is currently a member of the School of Economics and Business Administration’s Quality Assurance Committee and the Joint Monitoring Committee of the Public University of Navarre’s Family Business collaboration scheme.
