I am Professor of Economics at the Universidad de Alcalá (Spain). I obtained my Ph.D. at the European University Institute (EUI, Florence) and my main research interests span from the general theory and measurement of well-being to the statics and dynamics of the income distribution, poverty, inequality, the intergenerational transmission of opportunities, gender discrimination in the labour market and fiscal + social policy evaluation using microsimulation techniques such as EUROMOD. I am a member of the research group on inequality and poverty EQUALITAS, main researcher in WEIPO (Well-being, inEquality, Poverty and public pOlicy group) and external resercher at ECOSOT. Since 2021, I am Editor in Chief of the journal Applied Economics Analysis, member of the Board of the European Network for Social Policy Analysis (ESPANET), member of the Counselling Committee of the Spanish Autoridad Independiente de Responsabilidad Fiscal (AIReF) and member of the Counselling Commitee of the Spanish Secretaría General de Objetivos y Políticas de Inclusión y Previsión Social (Ministerio de Inclusión, Seguridad Social y Migraciones). Recently, I have joined Future Policy Lab as a Senior Fellow and published a chapter in the Research Handbook on Measuring Poverty and Deprivation with Marina Romaguera-de-la-Cruz. I currently teach a specialized course on "Economics of Well-being, Inequality and Poverty" in the Master in Applied Economic Analysis (MAEA, Universidad de Alcalá).
