Nuno is Professor of New Infrastructure Development at the Manchester Business School. His research focuses on the structures that bring the best of people in consensus-oriented collaborative networks formed to produce long-lived infrastructure and tackle major societal problems such as poverty relief, climate change, health care provision, and drug resistance. His work develops theory, cognitive frameworks, and methods for communicating with key stakeholders, the structure of collaborative networks, how these networks can perform effectively and efficiently, and how to measure performance in consensus-oriented collective action arenas.
