He is a member of the CEPR Research and Policy Network (RPN) on "Preventing Conflict: Policies for Peace". In parallel, he is also interested on studying the impact of online learning and hybrid teaching methods on students achievements. He has published in scientific journals such as the Journal of the European Economic Association, the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management or the American Journal of Agricultural Economics.. He has worked on several policy reports for a number of institutions such as the United Nations, NGOs and Governments.

The main objective of this webinar is to introduce students to economics and to present the fundamental concepts underlying the discipline.
