I am an Economic Historian with interest in Economic Theory and Industrial Organization.

I received a PhD in Economics at Northwestern University in 2014. My thesis was centered on traditional irrigation communities in Murcia, Spain. I am interested in water allocation and agricultural communities. My most recent work studies historical inequality and social mobility, in both sides of the Atlantic.

Our project Bridging the Atlantic aims at creating a comprehensive database of all migrants that crossed the Atlantic from Europe and Africa to the New World, from Columbus to today.


Our paper with Javier Donna, got accepted at The Review of Economic Studies

“The Illiquidity of Water Markets: Efficient Institutions for Water Allocation in Southeastern Spain”


I have two new working papers



             Classical Measurement Error

                  The Americas in 1588

Plots bought by LA 1904-1934

                 Rain Rituals worldwide
