My primary research interests are in the field of Applied Economics and
Econometrics, more in particular, in Healthcare Innovation and Hospital
Efficiency, Regional Economics 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".
