Before coming to the CIRHR, Santiago Campero was an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management at HEC Montreal. Santiago received a BSc in Engineering from the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and a PhD in Management from MIT. Prior to beginning his academic career, he worked as a management consultant at McKinsey and Company.

Trained as an economic sociologist, Santiago’s research explores the origins of various forms of inequality in the labor markets and organizations. His research has a particular focus on examining these issues in the context of high-tech startups, a sector that is both an important driver of job creation as well as one where certain groups of workers (e.g., women, certain ethnic groups) are persistently under-represented.
