I have a degree in Economics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, which is complemented with an exchange programme in Maastricht University. Subsequently, I completed a Master's in Economics at Carlos III University of Madrid, where I was able to learn advanced tools in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.
Additionally, I have worked in the Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility (AIReF) with a research scholarship in Economic Analysis, where I have been able to deepen my vocation in climate change, an area in which I develop my professional activity in BBVA Research.
The analysis of how climate-related acute physical events affect the economy must consider their unique aspects: brief duration and specific localization. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are instrumental in this analysis, for which three case studies are shown.
The increasing development of short-term climate scenarios is driven by enhanced supervisory expectation for a comprehensive understanding of the effects of climate change. Their design is a work in progress blending narratives, shocks and modeling tools.
The intensity of GHG emissions in scope 3 of the sectors of activity of the Spanish economy, estimated by BBVA Research with input-output analysis, generally maintains a downward trend, with notable advances in intensive sectors subject to the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).
