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), guided byJosu Arteche and Annick Laruelle. I got a M.Sc. in International Economics from Autonomous University of Madrid (2013), and worked as an economist outside academia before and after it . During my Ph.D. years I went on a COST Action short scientific mission at Toulouse School of Economics in Fall 2015 and visited the Wilf Family Deparment of Politics, New York University, during Fall 2016 and in June 2017.
My academic interests span the fields of political economy and comparative politics. My Ph.D. thesis investigates the economic aftermath of political institutions, with a focus on political equality and electoral institutions in democratic regimes. I am also studying the implications of cultural values in the gender distribution across fields of study of higher education in developed economies.
