As an economist, my research interests lie in a broad spectrum within applied economics, ranging from labour economics to behavioural economics, with a focus on retirement issues and economics of well-being.
I have been working on the social security claiming decision of the unemployed in the United States, and links their early claiming behaviour to their need to finance consumption during a costly job search process.
Another part of my work deals with the subjective determinants of retirement, and the relationship between well-being and retirement.
More recently I have been working about the "human" cost of labour, i.e. job-related mental illness, and suicide.
After spending one year in Florence at the European university Institute as a Max Weber Fellow, I moved to Barcelona where I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona.
