Fernando is a PhD student in the Economics department of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. In the past, he worked as a research fellow for the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington DC. Before that position, he obtained a master's degree from the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics and a bachelor's degree from the Universidad de Piura in Peru.
