Eduardo is an applied econometrician who uses experiments and secondary data to understand the development and economic implications of human capital. His research contributes to the understanding of the relationship between human capital and economic decision taking during childhood and the old age. He is currently researching the development of strategic and reciprocal behaviour in children, the partial identification of the effect of drought on children’s long-term cognitive development and the estimation of identification regions for the causal effect of retirement on cognitive development under invalid instruments.
Eduardo has published his research in high impact international journals (such as the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Health Economics or Journal of Productivity Analysis).
Before joining Strathclyde, Eduardo was a Senior Researcher at the University of Oxford (Blavatnik School of Government and Health Economics Research Centre). Prior to that, he was a tenured RCUK Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Manchester where he taught Econometric Theory and Statistics. Eduardo completed a Ph.D. in Econometrics at the University of Manchester thanks to the generous support of Fundación Ramón Areces.
