Enric Junqué de Fortuny is an Assistant Professor of Managerial Decision Sciences. Prior to his appointment at IESE, he was an Assistant Professor in Information Systems and Business Analytics at New York University (Shanghai), an Assistant Professor in Marketing at the Rotterdam School of Management (Netherlands) and a Senior Research Fellow at INSEAD’s eLab for Big Data (France/Singapore). He holds a Ph.D. in Applied Economics from the University of Antwerp, an M.Sc. in Computer Science Engineering, and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Ghent (Belgium).

Enric’s research interests lie within the realm of data science, information systems, and how to bridge insights from academia to society. Specifically, he is focused on answering descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive questions involving fine-grained human behavior. His research has been recognized with the European Research Paper of the Year 2017 award, organized by CIO-NET and the Association for Information Systems. His findings have been published in well-known journals and top conferences such as Management Information Systems Quarterly (MISQ), Journal of Consumer Research (JCR), Machine learning (ML), IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, and the Learning Systems, and Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD).
