I am a development economist working on child and adolescent development. I am passionate and committed to research that can contribute to positive societal change through better food security, health, and education for all children.
I am an Associate Professor of Development Economics at the University of Barcelona School of Economics. I am a Jacobs Foundation Fellow (2022-2024) and a European Research Council Starting grantee (2023-2028).
As child development is highly complex, my work is highly interdisciplinary, lying at the intersection of economics, global health, education, and developmental psychology. I very much enjoy collaborating with a wide range of experts in these fields to develop contextual evidence that can support effective policies.
Prior to my appointment at the University of Barcelona, I worked at Imperial College, the University of Oxford (at the Young Lives study), and I spent one year visiting the Econ dept. at the University Pompeu Fabra. I also consulted on issues related to child development for the University of Pennsylvania, UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, International Fund for Agriculture Development, World Food Program and the European Commission, among others.
