Research Fellow, UNU-WIDER

Carlos is a Research Fellow at the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER). He is on leave of absence from his previous appointment as professor of applied economics at the University of Vigo.

Carlos holds a PhD in economics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. His main research interest is the study of poverty, inequality and discrimination in both developed and developing countries. He is especially interested in those inequalities that occur between population groups (i.e. by gender, race, or ethnicity). His research deals with enhancing the empirical evidence as well as methodological tools for the measurement and understanding of those issues.
