I have obtained the national accreditation (ANECA) corresponding with the position of full professor in 2014 (2014-002678) and the recognition of research work by CNEAI during the periods 1997-2007 and 2008-2013.
I started my research during my Ph.D in UCM in Spain about the impact of public and human capital on productivity and economic growth, focusing my research specifically on the impact of infrastructures on economic growth and efficiency in several geographical contexts and along with quantitative methods.
