I am an economist and Research Fellow in the Digital Economy Unit of the European Commission’s Joint Research Center in Seville, Spain. My main research interests are in the economics of digitization and in empirical industrial organization. I am particularly interested in the effects of new technologies on media markets, innovation, and welfare.
My recent research has examined the effects of digitization on the supply of recorded music and on the welfare benefits of new products. I have also evaluated the effects of various government policies, the interaction between distinct music consumption channels, and the welfare effects of digital music and movie trade. I am currently exploring the differences between mobile and fixed internet browsing and its implications for consumers, advertisers, and website publishers.
