I joined the Department of Economics at Middlesex University in January 2013. Since 2014, I have a part-time position. I graduated in Mathematics and studied the PhD in Economics at University of Alicante. I have also worked for the University of Granada and currently I am Associate Professor at University Pablo Olavide, Seville. I have visited twice the University of California, Campus of Santa Barbara to work with Prof Gary Charness.
My research interests are in Experimental Economics where I have worked on Social Networks, Social Preferences, Political Economy and Labour Markets. I have published in several mainstream journals such as the American Economic Review, Games and Economic Behavior, European Economic Review, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Experimental Economics, etc. I have also published a chapter in the Latin America Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
