I received my Ph.D. in economics from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 2003 and have been teaching there since then. My teaching interests primarily include economic growth, development, and political economy.
My research is principally focused on the economics of education, studying how factors like social development, violence, or educational inputs as new technologies determine academic success. The gender perspective is fundamental in these studies.
My research has also analyzed the links between growth, innovation, and human capital. For example, I have built different human capital indicators and examined how this factor contributes to innovation and economic growth.
I have supervised research projects and doctoral theses in these areas, and my works have been published in leading international journals such as Technovation, Socio-Economic Planning Sciences, Computers and Education, Psychology of Violence, and Mathematics
Finally, my long-lasting interest in the Latin American region has led me to be a visiting professor, researcher, and consultant in several regional institutions.
