About Me

I am a complex systems researcher working as an Associate Professor at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. My research interests are very interdisciplinary, but focused on the study of complex systems and emergent phenomena. Specifically, I work on understanding human behaviour (mainly but not only, related to socio-economic dilemmas) by means of experimentation, modelling and data analysis. My goal as a researcher is to make interesting and high quality contributions as well as to have fun with science.
