Thanks for visiting my website!

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the Department of Applied Economics III (Econometrics and Statistics), University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), under the supervision of Josu Arteche and Annick Laruelle.

My Ph.D. dissertation gathers four chapters that span the fields of political economics and gender economics. The first three chapters focus on the economic aftermath of political institutions by empirically studying three relationships:

(i) democracy and economic performance

(ii) electoral systems and special interest groups

(iii) electoral institutions and income inequality

The last chapter studies the trends and drivers of the gender distribution across fields of study in higher education by considering how cultural values and institutional constraints might affect the educational choices of men and women.

iv) cultural values and horizontal gender segregation in higher education

I am a member of the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE). I collaborate with the economics e-learning platform Exploring Economics and in the Gender and Economics working group of the Young Scholar Initiative (YSI) - Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET).
