Welcome to my website. I am the Director of MOVE, Associate Professor of Economics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and Associate Research Professor at the Barcelona School of Economics. I am also an External Fellow at CReAM (UCL). I graduated from CEMFI in 2011.
I am Data Editor of the Economic Journal (check the dedicated website) and of the Econometrics Journal, Editorial Board Member of the Review of Economic Studies, and Associate Editor of SERIEs—The Journal of the Spanish Economic Association. I have also served as Guest Editor for a Special Issue on "Economics of Migration: Labour Market Impacts and Migration Policies" of Labour Economics, the Journal of the European Association of Labour Economists.
My research interests are in Labor Economics and Structural Microeconometrics. My current research focuses on immigration, internal migration, occupational mobility, inequality, human capital accumulation, technological progress, and frictions. I am the co-organizer of two conferences at the Summer Forum of the BºSE, one on Structural Microeconometrics and the other one Migration.
This cloud summarizes the most frequent words I use in (some of) my papers:
I have been awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant for my project "Dynamic Modeling of Labor Market Mobility and Human Capital Accumulation (DYMOLAMO)".
I have taught several courses on a broad set of topics in Microeconometrics (see my class notes and slides). I also teach courses on Migration and Structural Microeconometrics at the Labor Economics and Microeconometrics BSE Summer Schools (more information).
