Biography

Born in Utrera, Seville (1980), I obtained my PhD/Doctorate in Economy and Sustainability of Water at the University of Pablo de Olavide, Seville (Spain) and my Degree in Economics at the University of Seville (Spain).
Nowadays, I am a Lecturer in the Department of Statistics, Econometrics, Operational Research, Business Organization and Applied Economics at the University of Cordoba (Spain).

Research Interests

My research focuses on water and agricultural economics as a whole, with an emphasis in the following main research lines:

  • Economic analysis of water uses.
  • Cost recovery of water services.
  • Cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analysis.
  • Sustainable water management
  • Economic, social and policy issues in agricultural sector.

Maria del Mar’s current research projects include:

  • National Project (AGL2014-53417-R). EVAMODRE: Evaluation of irrigation modernization in the context of climate change: Assessing of current and future scenarios of Southern Spain basins. (2015-2018).

Other previous research projects include SYWAG (System of Water Accounting in the Guadalquivir River Basin, 2014-2015), Establishment of a Peer Review Mechanism for the Improvement of Water Framework Directive Implementation, 2015.
