My research interests are macroeconomic theory and heterogeneous agent macroeconomics.
I am co-PI in the SSHRC Insight Development Grant "Wealth Patterns and Taxation" joint with Rory McGee (. I am also a project participant of the RCN-funded project "Make Taxation Fair" (FRIPRO, NOK 11.8 million, 2021-2026).
I am part of the Grupo de Economía Laboral (GEL) of the Red de Investigadores.
