I am from a small island called Gran Canaria (Spain) where I did my PhD in Economics. I am Senior Research Fellow at Auckland Centre for Financial Research (Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand). My research focuses on the pricing of commodities and behavioral finance. My articles are published in leading academic journals such as the Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Finance, Journal of Banking and Finance or Energy Economics, among others. As testimonies of the relevance of my research to the industry, my work is featured in media and practitioners' journals (Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Harvard Business Review, USA Today, Global Commodities Applied Research Digest, Hedge Funds Review, Investment and Pension Europe, or The Conversation), and was awarded grants from financial market participants such as INQUIRE UK, BA/Leverhulme or AFAANZ. I am member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Global Commodities Applied Research Digest.
