I was born in Cordoba (Spain, 1961), where I began my studies in agricultural engineering but it was at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) where I graduated (1987) and later I obtained my PhD in Agricultural Engineering (1990) in the field of agricultural economics. I’ve been Associate Professor of economics and agricultural economics at the School of Agricultural Engineering of the UPM and since 1997 professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at the University of Cordoba, where I now exercise my teaching and research activity.
I have researched and published in the area of agrarian economy in the field of agricultural markets; European agricultural policy and its effects on various agricultural and livestock sectors; agricultural job and part-time dynamics in farms; productivity and production efficiency in agriculture; and in the field of water resources as water policy and water markets in agriculture.
