I am Full Professor and ICREA Researcher in economics at Pompeu Fabra University, affiliated faculty to the Barcelona School of Economics (BSE) and the Institute for Political Economy and Governance (IPEG), Research Advisor at Gallup, Research Affiliate of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), and Research Fellow of CESifo and IZA. I have served as associate editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association and of the European Economic Review.
I study political economy with a focus on the functioning and impact of traditional and new media in democratic societies. I am the recipient of a five-year starting grant from the European Research Council for a project on the "Independence and Quality of Mass Media in the Internet Age". My work has been published in top journals in economics, political science, and management, and is regularly featured in the press.

I will be visiting INSEAD and the Paris School of Economics during the 2022-23 academic year.
