I am an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in the Department of Economics at Bonn University, where I am a member of the Institute for Macroeconomics and Econometrics and the Macrohistory Lab. I will be visiting Brown University during the Spring of 2017.
My primary research interests are in Development Economics, Economic History and Economic Growth.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in 2015 and I visited the London School of Economics, through the European Doctoral Programme.
My dissertation on long-term Economic Persistence under Professor Hans-Joachim Voth was awarded the Enrique Fuentes Quintana prize for best thesis in the Social Sciences in Spain.
