I am Associate Professor of Finance (with tenure) at the University of Valencia (Spain) and was at the University of Virginia (USA), Department of Economics, teaching Corporate Finance as a Visiting Professor from 2012 to 2015. I have also been Visiting Professor at the University of Lausanne (Fall 2022) and at the University of Geneva (November 2007-October 2010). My PhD Thesis obtained the Young Research Award in Economics from the General Foundation of the Complutense University of Madrid, and the Victor Mendoza Award for PhD Theses (1st accésit) from the Institute of Economic Studies (IEE, Spain).

I am currently Director of the Official Master in Corporate Finance at the University of Valencia.

My main areas of research interest include Behavioral Finance, Experimental Economics, SME Finance and Risk Attitudes. I use Economics Experiments to analyze behavior and financial decisions of economic agents under risk and ambiguity. My recent work studies measures that improve the financing of entrepreneurial projects led by women and the integration of women in competitive environments such as science, industry or politics.

I have supervised 4 PhD dissertations and more than 15 Master Thesis, and participated in more than eighty international and Spanish conferences. I have participated in 16 research projects, being the Principal Researcher of the INNACC00/2020/40 and INNACC00/19/054 projects funded by the Government of the Generalitat Valenciana.
