Currículum abreujat

I am an economist working on economic development with expertise in Latin America, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Thailand and Spain. I pursued a Master degree in Development Studies at the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague and I obtained in 2003 a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Manchester (UK).

My research experience on development economics with emphasis on applied microeconomics covers three main areas: a) well-being and quality of life research in developing countries (poverty, happiness economics, objective and subjective analysis of wellbeing), as well as social protection and informal economy; b) agricultural economics and rural development (market analysis, rural non-farm activities, food security issues at the household level, agricultural policy and food policy); and c) household behaviour and household economics (production, consumption and labour allocation).

My research findings have been published in books and in academic journals such as Social Indicator Research, Journal of Happiness Studies, Journal of International Development, Applied Research in Quality of Life and Journal of Economic Methodology.
