I am Professor of Economics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and former Chair of the Department of Economics (Economic Theory and Economic History). Currently, I am also visiting scholar at the Erasmus University, and fellow to the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM), where I collaborate with several scholars from the Rotterdam School of Management.
My research interests lay on the general field of Microeconomics. Particularly Economic Measurement (Index Numbers and Duality Theory), Productivity and Efficiency analysis (Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis), Economic Geography and Spatial Economics (New Economic Geography and New Trade Theory), Transport Economics (Infrastructure and Accessibility), and Cultural and Institutional Economics (Copyright industries). My applied research relates to the areas of Regional and Urban Economics, Environmental Economics and Industrial Organization, using both Operations Research (mathematical optimization) and Econometrics as empirical methods.
I have published over 30 papers in journals, led relevant national projects bringing together different universities, institutions and stakeholders, and am acting consultant to the European Commission (Joint Research Center), World Property Intellectual Organization (UN), and the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.
