I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Barcelona. Currently I work at Booking.com as a Data Analyst and I am an affiliate researcher at the Barcelona Institute of Economics (IEB). My research analyses the behaviour of the different city agents and their reactions to changes in transportation. The title of my PhD thesis is “Transportation and Urban Structure”. Using micro-data as a starting point, I address research questions concerning the spatial structure of the cities. Specifically, my research mainly concerns the externalities of transportation on the urban environment. Suburbanisation, congestion, accidents and the environmental impact of highway construction are all crucial external effects that I study. Furthermore, my research on the spatial concentration of the retail sector in the Netherlands provides evidence for positive shopping externalities related to transportation.
