When I first thought that I wanted to understand how the world economy works, I became a researcher without even knowing. Then, when I once heard that Rafael Barrett thought that those who do not teach what they know are but stealing, I started to teach too. Later I learnt that both things are complementary ways to collectively build knowledge, and I love that; after all, knowledge requires that we all cooperate.

So far, I have taught at the University of León, Isabel I University, University of A Coruña, Complutense University of Madrid and Syracuse University (in Madrid). I have also been a researcher at some institutions in Argentina, Spain and Sweden. I have published several articles at journals including Cambridge Journal of Economics, International Journal of Health Services, Revista Galega de Economía, etc.; and have co-authored books published with Fondo de Cultura Económica or Icaria, among others.
