I am an Associate Professor of Management at Carlos III University in Madrid, Spain.

My research seeks to understand the economic costs and benefits of human resource policies.

In a context of increasing competitive pressure, organizations have become more aware of the need to design HR policies that improve their employees' incentives. However, in this endeavor they are confronted with numerous questions about how employees should be rewarded (paid/promoted), how jobs should be designed, and how reward policies interact with job design. Answers are not simple because economic incentives can be very powerful, but can also generate large distortions. Moreover, incentive schemes have to take into account that organizations have structural features that may be hard to change. Such is (broadly speaking) the main focus of my research.
