Ph.D., Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, 2004


I am originally from Madrid, Spain. I attended Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where I received a B.S. in math, and University Carlos III de Madrid where I received a Ph.D. in Economics in 2004. Following two years on the faculty of the Universidad de Navarra, in Pamplona, Spain, I came to Indiana University in 2006 as an Assistant Professor of Economics. My research interests fall broadly into the area of econometric theory, with an emphasis on specification testing in econometric models for cross section and time series sequences. Most of my research has focused on the development of consistent specification tests using the modern theory of empirical processes for dependent data. I have published papers in Journal of the American Statistical Society, Journal of Econometrics, Econometric Theory, Statistica Sinica, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis.
