Licentiate in Economics (University of Buenos Aires, Argentina), Master in Economics (National Unviersity of La Plata, Argentina), PhD in Economics (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Italy). Currently I am a Research Fellow at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU, University of Sussex) working on the EU Horizon 2020 ISIGrowth Project. In particular, I apply and develop Input-Output techniques and simulation models of industrial dynamics to analyse innovation, technical progress, structural change and income distribution. I have previously been a post-doc researcher at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Mathematical Finance and Econometrics (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart), designing and implementing algorithms and metrics in complex networks to study industry clusters and node centrality in interindustry networks. Before my doctoral studies I have worked as an economic officer at the Ministry of Economy and Production of Argentina, focusing on Regional Input-Output Analysis.
