I started my career as a physicist at CERN, where I had to solve problems about the origin of the universe and deal with the complexity of massive data generation and analysis. I was embedded in a culture of open innovation and collaboration that shaped forever the way I work and approach day to day challenges in every domain.
I later earned an MBA while working full time and gathered hands-on experience in corporate finance and strategy while creating a portfolio modeling tool in the Underwriting Strategy team at Swiss Re.
My analytical mind enjoys thinking out of the box and I like breaking complex problems into smaller pieces. I follow closely the tech industry and I am constantly investigating the possibilities that new technologies open to traditional industries.
I am currently applying my skills and experience to help my organization execute its Tech Transformation strategy. I manage the relationships with Swiss Re’s technology partners in Silicon Valley and Israel and I am working on extracting value when fundamental technologies are deployed in the different links of the value chain.
You can find me @kaluza and know more about me on LinkedIn. I also write occasionally on The Smoke Sellers, a blog about science and technology that I co-funded in 2005 and that was featured as one of the top Spanish blogs in 2008.
My views on this blog are very much my own.
