Research

Sound, timely and well-designed economic policy-making can benefit from economic research.

My main research areas are macroeconomics, public economics and labor and demographic economics. Examples include fiscal policies, taxation, public expenditures and pensions, debt, unemployment, retirement or informal labor markets. In addition, from the beginning I have been interested in international economics, such as trade or competitiveness. Several of my projects have been borderline cases between different fields in economics or between economics and political science.

Regarding the methodologies, I primarily use quantitative macroeconomic modeling techniques, such as D(S)GE models, New Keynesian models or models with overlapping generations. Nonetheless, I am familiar with (macro)econometrics, in particular, (S)VAR, time series or panel econometrics.
