Research Interests

Macroeconomics, Firm Dynamics and Development Economics


Juan Carlos is a Macroeconomist with both theoretical and empirical interests. His main research focuses on Firm Dynamics with a special interest in understanding how financial frictions affect firms in the economy, and as a result, aggregate productivity and output. He works, as well, in understanding the determinants of Poverty and Inequality both across and within countries and which economic policies are more effective at mitigating them.

He holds a Ph.D. in Economics and Government from Center for Monetary and Financial Studies (CEMFI). During his Ph.D., he visited the New York University Stern School of Business and the University of Toronto. Previously, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB).
