My research has been published in finance (the Review of Financial Studies) and management journals (Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice, and Global Strategy Journal).
I hold a Ph.D. in Finance and an MSc in Financial Engineering from UAI; and during my doctoral studies I visited the Rotterdam School of Management - Erasmus University. Before my academic career, I worked as a portfolio manager at Itau Bank in Chile for several years.
Since 2019, I co-organize the Barcelona Accounting Seminars and Workshops.
