Adrián studied Economics for his bachelors and masters. During his PhD at the University of East Anglia, Adrián studied the links between inequality, relative deprivation, and human development outcomes with a special focus on health and education. Adrián also specialised in quantitative methods, econometric modelling, and impact evaluation.
Adrián undertook a postdoc at the Centre for the Socio-Economic Impact Evaluation of Environmental Policies (CESIEP) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile where he worked evaluating the success of programmes in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Chile in terms of their impact on human wellbeing.
Adrián has now joined the Health Policy team at the Health Economics Centre in the University of York where he is researching mental health, specifically in the context of the NHS.
Adrián’s main research interests include international development, economic inequality and its links with health, education, and welbeing. He is also interested in impact evaluation of environmental policies, and the links between academia and policy making.
