What do you like most about your job?

The fun of solving puzzles in scientific research: every day there’s a new puzzle.

Which project from the past year are you most proud of?

Our team just completed an enormous project for the European Commission. The project involved analysing the impact of financial aid (from the state) to European banks during the 2008 financial crisis.

What might your colleagues not know about you?

When I was completing my PhD, I also obtained a diploma in Swedish massage from the university hospital in Barcelona. This would allow me to open my own beauty salon.
