About me

I was born in Lima, Peru, where I took my degree in Economics at the Universidad del Pácifico, subsequently teaching there. In 1984 I earned my Master's degree in Economics from Stanford University, and in 1989 I began my doctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where I was a research assistant to Lawrence Klein and Albert Ando. In 1994 I moved to Spain and joined IE, teaching and running the Economic Environment course.

Executive Vice President of the IE Foundation

At present, I am Executive Vice President of the IE Foundation, a position I hold in parallel with that of Vice President of Global and Strategic Agreements at IE University. I am also a member of the Steering Committee at IE University. Prior to this I was Director of IE’s External Relations Department and Director of the Department of International Relations. I currently combine my management responsibilities with teaching courses on Managerial Economics, Country Economic Analysis and Economic Development. My interests include emerging countries, financial crises and the effects of aging populations.
