After finishing my studies in Economics at the Universidad de Salamanca in 2003, I
spent one year doing a Master in Economic Sciences at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
(Belgium). It was there and then that I decided to orientate my professional life to the
academic world. In 2005, I was awarded a Ph.D. scholarship by the Spanish Government. In
2009 I was awarded a Ph.D. in Economics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona under
the supervision of professor Ferran Sancho. The dissertation title was "A General
Equilibrium Assessment of the Rebound Effect: The Spanish case". 

I have also held a visiting research post at the Fraser of Allander Institute
(Strathclyde University, in Glasgow, UK) from September to December 2008 participating
actively in some of their projects, especially the ESCR project on Energy Rebound in the
UK (ref: RES-061025-0010, project Director: Prof. Karen Turner), working with UK data and
exchanging research experiences. In June-July 2011 I visited the School of Planning and
Public Policy at Rutgers University. I have also recently received financial support from
Instituto the Estudios Fiscales to carry out the project "Green Tax Reforms and the
Mitigation of the Rebound Effect: Evaluating a Possible Third Dividend". 

After visiting the departament of Economics of the Universidad Pablo de Olavide, in
Seville, in 2010-11, I am now an Assistant Professor at the University of Granada,
Department of International Economics, in Spain, and a member of the Research Group in
Computation and Simulation at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. I have recently been
invited to be a member of the Editorial Board of the Review of Regional Studies.
