Major Research Interests

Understanding the complex phenomena of inequality has motivated my research career, which is undertaken in the joint arenas of Development and Behavioural Economics.  In particular, I position myself as someone who aims to understand inequality, using both theoretical (mainly evolutionary models) and empirical tools (mainly discrete choice models). My research includes papers published in Social Choice and Welfare (2008), Demography (2010) and World Development (2016), which has been quoted as important original research and are 3* journals according to Keele Rank.

Teaching Experience

Since 2005 I have taught a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, with a microeconomic perspective, both in Spanish and English. At Glasgow University, I designed, developed an undergraduate course on Economics of Poverty to be implemented in 2016-2017. During my career, I have taught more than 20 different groups of size that ranges between 15 to 90 students. My teaching is characterized by an interactive approach based on the creation of small groups environments. Moreover, I make extensive use of the dialogue and questioning among students to help engage students with the critical thinking methodology. This methodology has many applications within and out of the university. One of its most popular applications is to learn to perceive social, political and economic contradictions and to take action against the oppressive elements of reality.
