Welcome to my webpage!
I am full professor of economics and ICREA researcher at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, associated researcher of the Institute of Political Economy and Governance (IPEG) and of the Barcelona School of Economics (BSE). I am also research affiliate of the Centre for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), research fellow at CESIfo and IZA, and research advisor at Gallup. I have served as associate editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association and of the European Economic Review.
I study political economics with a focus on the functioning and impact of traditional and new media in democratic societies. I am the recipient of a starting grant from the European Research Council for a five-year project on the "Independence and Quality of Mass Media in the Internet Age".
