My primary research interests are in the field of Health Economics and Econometrics, more in particular, in Technology Diffusion and Hospital Efficiency, Health Technology Assessment and Policy Evaluation. All these fields of research are analysed from an empirical perspective.
I am currently involved in three main projects:
- CRES (UPF) - Obra Social de la Caixa: "Physical Activity and Mental Health" with Helena Hernández-Pizarro
Prize for the best paper ("The creep of the robots") presented at the Spanish Health Economics Association Meeting, University of Castilla la Mancha, Albacete (2019) by a young researcher. Funded by "Cátedra CaixaBank-Fedea".
