ifo Institute & Ludwig-Maximiliams University

I’ve been fascinated by research in development economics since I started my bachelor in Economics at the University of Salamanca. For this reason, I decided to pursue a Master in Development Economics from the Georg-August University of Göttingen, where I worked as a research assistant and field research assistant for multiple research groups in the development economics department. After finishing my masters, I worked as visiting researcher at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) focusing primarily on policy related to Climate-Smart Agriculture. To return to empirical research, I applied and was accepted for a very competitive Ph.D. position at the ifo Institute and the Munich Graduate School of Economics of the Ludwig-Maximiliams University
