Ph.D. Institution

Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain


After completing my undergraduate studies in Mathematics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, I enrolled in the graduate program in Economics of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain, where I completed a Ph.D. which focused on international trade.
My research agenda is motivated by the apparent discrepancy between the benefits of trade that economic theory predicts and the persistent criticism that globalization faces in reality.
In earlier papers, I analyze strategic protection for trade, with emphasis on topics such as the role of industrial policy in international trade agreements, economic vulnerability and subsidization of vital sectors, and some issues concerning the infant industry argument. In my current work I write on the interconnection between trade volumes, per capita income, and income distribution. My papers typically develop theoretical models and illustrate how small deviations of a standard setup introduce novel effects. The aim is to understand prominent trade patterns, or to analyze popular policy arguments in the context of international trade.
Besides work I like reading, I play the cello, and practice some sports.
