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.
