I am a Scientific Officer at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, where I contribute to study and assess the economic effects of climate change at the global and EU levels, including the cross-sectoral impacts, as well as the effectiveness of alternative adaptation policies.

My research interests span several disciplines, and are always headed to understand the socio-economic effects of the environment on human activities, with a particular focus on low-probability, high-impact climate events. I am interested in computer programming and am steadily looking for innovative and efficient ways of displaying data. I am a strong advocate of open science and reproducible research.

Previously, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, where I implemented my project WATER DROP on the economic assessment of droughts. I received my PhD in Quantitative Economics at the University of Alicante (Spain). Before that, I worked at the Research Department of the Bank of Spain and obtained a Master’s Degree in Economics and Finance at CEMFI. I completed my undergraduate studies in Economics at the University of Murcia (Spain) and the Manchester Metropolitan University (UK).
