I am an assistant professor at the department of Economics, Uppsala University and a research affiliate at CESifo.

I received my PhD from CEMFI, Madrid in 2015. My research covers topics in applied economics such as political economy, housing economics, and econometrics.
On June 12 and 13 we organized a political economy workshop in Uppsala. Here you can find the final program.
