I am a Ph.D. student in the UCL School of Management. Through my research, I aim to better understand attitudes towards effort and explore heuristics that may impact decisions to exert effort and persist. I am also interested in uncovering how identity salience shapes decision-making. I am passionate about Behavioural Sciences and collaborate with the Behavioural Insights Team. My supervisors are Chia-Jung Tsay and Sunny (Sun Young) Lee.

Prior to joining UCL, I worked as an economist for the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, and as a tax advisor at several Spanish law firms. I hold a Master in International Affairs from Columbia University, a Master of Law in Taxation from ESADE and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Navarre.
