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.

I am happy to announce that, together with Leticia Arroyo Abad, we received a National Science Foundation grant to study migrant networks and the role of human capital and institutions in long term development in the Americas.
