Four associate researchers join the IEB on receiving María Zambrano scholarships

Four lecturers have joined the IEB as associate visiting researchers thanks to the María Zambrano scholarships. These scholarships, promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and the University of Barcelona (UB), have a duration of one or two years and aim to attract researchers with at least two years of postdoctoral experience in institutions other than the one where they presented their doctoral thesis.

The four researchers who have joined the IEB are: Dimitrios Xefteris Juan Rosellón (from September), Leopoldo Fergusson, and Miren Lafourcade. Xefteris and Rosellón will stay for two years, and Fergusson and Lafourcade for one.

Dimitrios Xefteris, who joins the IEB on the recommendation of Professor Albert Solé, is a lecturer at the University of Cyprus. His research is focused on Game Theory and economic behaviour.

Juan Rosellón, from the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), is an expert in energy and environmental issues, and was invited by the UB Professor José García Quevedo.

Leopoldo Fergusson is director of CEDE, the research centre at the Departamento de Economía de la Universidad de los Andes (Colombia) and has joined the IEB at the suggestion of the UB professor Daniel Montolio. His research areas are economic policy and development economics.

Miren Lafourcade is a lecturer at the Universite Paris Saclay and is an associate researcher at the París School of Economics. She was recommended to the IEB by Professor Elisabet Viladecans, and her area of research is urban economics.
