I am an Economic Historian, mainly interested in taxation, inequality, and public policies. My PhD analysed the distributive consequences of the Spanish transition to democracy, particularly the reforms and operation of the tax system. My current research deals with the relation between the tax structure and the rise of welfare states in the period 1910 to 1970, by comparing the trajectories of five different countries.
