sergio2-idI am an applied micro-economist interested in issues at the intersection of political economy and public finance. In particular, my research has focused on political selection, corruption, direct democracy and fiscal policy.

I work as a Swiss National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the Barcelona Institute of Economics (IEB) of the University of Barcelona. I am also a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Economics (IdEP) of the University of Lugano (USI) and visiting researcher at the Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE) of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research.

News: I will be joining the Chair of Public Economics at KOF, ETH Zurich, as a postdoctoral researcher from February 2018.
