Welcome to my website! I am a PhD student in Economics at CEMFI (Madrid). My research interests are in the fields of macroeconomics and banking. I am currently visiting the NYU Department of Economics (Spring 2019)

My ongoing research covers two main topics: (1) the feedback loop between sovereign and banking crises, with an interest in the macroprudential implications of the regulatory treatment of banks' sovereign exposures; and (2) the financial stability implications of accounting rules for banks, with an interest in assessing the procyclicality of expected credit loss provisions under IFRS9 and CECL.

During summer 2018 I worked for the Bank of England (London) as a PhD intern within the Financial Stability Strategy and Risk (FSSR) Directorate.

In the past I worked for the European Central Bank (Frankfurt), within the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) Secretariat, where my research focused on the interconnectedness between EU banks and shadow banking entities, and on the structure of European OTC derivatives markets.
