BBVA Research - Economist

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.
