He went on to work for Procter and Gamble in the field of Technology and Operations Management. He is an executive board member of the Cambridge University Engineers Association and a member of St. Edmund’s College.
Leonidas' research focuses on the role of machine learning in technology management processes. More specifically, Leonidas analyses big datasets of intellectual property data and forecasts technological value/impact using deep learning models. This is anticipated to improve the technology strategic decision-making processes within innovation management models.
