Curriculum Vitae for Dr. Maine
Elicia Maine’s main research interests are in technology management, technology entrepreneurship, and the commercialization of innovation. She is most interested in understanding the growth of New Technology Based Firms in the advanced materials, nanomaterials, fuel cell, biotech, and nano-bio sectors.
Dr. Maine has published in leading technology management journals, such as Research Policy, R&D Management, Technovation, and International Journal of Technology Management. She has also developed an investment methodology for materials, a strategic tool used to assist seed capital firms in assessing early stage material innovations. Her co-authored manual on this topic, "Succeeding with New Materials, a Comprehensive Guide for Assessing Market Potential" is available in hard copy from the SFU bookstore and from the Centre for Technology Management at the University of Cambridge, and electronically from www.advancedmaterialscommercialization.com
Before academia, Elicia worked in industry as a strategic consultant in Canada, the United States, and Austria.
