Born in April 17th, 1974 in Santa Coloma de
Gramenet (Barcelona, Spain) I have been interested in
economics from very early ages. I studied Development Economics at
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) in Barcelona, did the military
service as 2nd Liutenant, and enrolled in the PhD programme in
Environmental Sciences at UAB in 1997. I finally received the PhD
(Analysing the exosomatic energy metabolism of societies) in October
2005. In the mean time I went to the UK to study at Keele University,
where I did two masters, one in Environmental Politics, and one in
From a professional point of view, I have been
in academics. Currently I am rector at Universidad Regional Amazónica IKIAM. Previously, I was researcher at FLACSO Ecuador and Dean and researcher of the Centro de Prospectiva Estratégica
(CEPROEC) at Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales (IAEN) in Ecuador.
I have also served as Assistant Professor at the Department of
Economics and Economic History of UAB, where I was also a research
fellow at ICTA - UAB. I have given courses at FLACSO Ecuador,
Universidad de Buenos Aires, Universidad Pablo de Olavide and
Oberta de Catalunya. I worked as researcher for two years at the
Italian National Institute for Research on Food and Nutrition, and one
year at the Institute for Social Ecology of the University of
Klagenfurt, Austria. Moreover, with some friends we set up an
environemntal consulting firm, ENT Environment & Management
where I worked for some time as Manager.
I have attended many international conferences and
papers. I have also published my work both in Spanish and English,
which you can find at the Research
page. I have been involved in the set up of the scientific association
Liphe4 and the Iberoamerican Network for Ecological Economics.
I played basketball and above all rugby for many
years and I
still consider myself a rugby player. I like being surrounded by
mountains, and reading a nice book by a fireplace, pleasure that I can
mainly have in Almegíjar, in La Alpujarra in Granada where my parents
come from. This does not mean I wouldn't enjoy living, for example, in
Santa Marta, Colombia.
