Short CV

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at BC3, Fellow Researcher at the MIT and Ikerbasque Research Fellow. The main research area of my career has been the analysis of the socio-economic impacts of different climate measures and how to ensure a just energy transition that achieves ambitious climate goals without harming vulnerable groups in the society. I have been very active in my research as shown by my publications in some of the best peer-reviewed journals in energy and environmental economics, such as Energy Economics, Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy or Energy Policy. I have also presented at some of the leading international conferences, such as the conferences organised by the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists or the Global Conference on Environmental Taxation (CGET) and closely worked with policy makers. I have been able to work in high-level research projects, which have had both scientific and social impact.
