Welcome to my webpage! I am Associate Professor at the Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences, University of Cantabria, and received the "habilitación" in 2008. I am also Affiliated Senior Research Fellow at the Faculty of Social Science, Open University, UK and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Economic Policy Reform. I serve on the editorial board of Utilities Policy and CIRIEC, among other journals, and have guest edited in journals such as Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society, Business History, Review of International Political Economy and Global Policy. I have published dozens of papers in leading international journals including J. of European Public Policy, J. of Regulatory Economics, Regional Studies, Health Policy, Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy & Society, Review of International Political Economy, Public Administration, J. of Comparative Policy Analysis,  International Review of Applied Economics, Revista de Economía Mundial and Global Policy. I received my DPhil in Political Economy from the University of Oxford in 1997 after completing a Masters in Contemporary International Studies at the University of Leeds. I have lectured at Oxford, Leeds, Cornell and Oviedo universities and have been a Visiting Research Scholar at Cornell, El Colegio de Méxcio, European University Institute, Instituto Ortega y Gasset and Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas and was awarded the Fulbright-Schuman Fellowship to take up at Cornell University in 2014. My research interests lie in examining the origins, determinants and consequences of policy, both public and economic.
