I am a visiting scholar at the Korea Institute at Harvard and a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences. I work in the field of comparative political economy. In particular, I am interested in how economic institutions are constructed and what is their effect on production structures and growth.
My current research investigates how interactions between large firms and governments change over time and their role in shaping economic transformation in two late industrializing economies: Spain and South Korea.
I hold a PhD in Political Economy from the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (2014), an MPA in Political Economy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University (2008), an MBA in Decision Sciences, Managerial Economics and Business Strategy from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (2006), and a BA in Law and Economics from the University of Deusto (1997).
In addition to my academic work, I have consulted for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the UK Department for Business Innovation and Skills and the Spanish Economic office on issues including regulation, telecommunications policy and business internationalization.
