Hola, welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam's School of Economics.

I completed a PhD in Sustainable Development at Columbia University, specializing in environmental and urban economics. I am an Affiliated Scholar at the Institute for Policy Integrity in New York University, where I was an Economics Fellow (postdoc) during the academic year 2020-2021.

I also hold a Master in City Planning from the University of California, Berkeley, as well as degrees in Environmental Studies from Imperial College London, and in Civil Engineering from the University of A Coruña, Spain. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a consultant in sustainable infrastructure and urban planning projects.
