Welcome to my homepage. I am an assistant professor at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, a research fellow at MOVE, and an affiliated professor at the Barcelona GSE. I am also a Research Affiliate of SAFE at the House of Finance at Goethe University Frankfurt.

I work in the fields of Macroeconomics and Labor Economics, using parametric and non-parametric empirical methods together with quantitative structural models to address questions of labor income dynamics, insurance against income risk, and labor market mobility.
