I am currently Professor of Economics and Entrepreneurship at the “Escuela Superior de Ciencias Sociales y de la Empresa” of TecnoCampus (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) where I am as well the director of the graduate program in Entrepreneurship.

I obtained a Ph.D from the Department of Business and Economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.

My research is mainly focused in the interaction between finance and psychology. On the side of finance, I am especially interested in understanding collective behavior in asset markets. In particular I use laboratory experiments to investigate two different but related phenomena: Asset Bubbles and Ponzi Scheme. In psychology I like to understand how individual characteristics and mental processes can affect people decisions when facing uncertain or risky situations such as trading, starting a new business or negotiating.
