I joined the Spanish Corp of State Economists in 2008 and worked for a three-year period as an economic analyst in the Directorate General for Macroeconomic Analysis and International Economics at the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. In 2011 I started a secondment at the European Commission as a National Expert, within the Directorate General of Economic and Financial Affairs, carrying out responsibilities related to implementation of the Macroeconomic Imbalances Procedure. Notably, the monitoring and analysis of real estate markets and private sector balance sheets. After my stay in Brussels, I recently joined the newly created Spanish Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility (AIReF). Together with colleagues from the Economic Analysis Division, we are in charge of macroeconomic projections and public debt sustainability analysis.
I hold a Master Degree in Economic Analysis from the London School of Economics and a BA in Economics from the University of Extremadura. I am currently engaged in getting a PhD degree in economics from Universidad Autónoma in Madrid. I have also worked as a lecturer teaching courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in various institutions, including the University of Extremadura, the Center for Economic and Business Studies (CECO), the London School of Economics and the George Washington University, among others.
On the personal side, I greatly enjoy all kinds of sport-related activities. Lately I am getting more and more into the triathlon world, after overcoming my complete lack of swimming skills. Running, cycling and swimming have become part of my weekly routines, with a clear target in mind: finishing an ironman race (sooner than later).
