Economics and Management - Universitat Pompeu Fabra & ESADE Business School

Hi, I'm Sergio! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics and Management at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.

Emotions shape our choices, motivate our behaviors, and have a crucial impact on our mental and physical health. In my research, I use a combination of classic econometrics, behavioral experiments, and novel smartphone and machine learning tools to study the dynamic and complex nature of human emotion.

I'm primarily interested in understanding (1) the impact of socio-economic factors on people's everyday emotional experiences and (2) the impact of our emotional experiences on choice and decision-making.
