Brief description of the Centre/Research Group:
The research group GIADE (Ref. SEJ-478) is a group of researchers from the University of Granada, who work in various areas of management and economic research (http://sej478.ugr.es/datos_inicio/).
It is a consolidated research group and has a large human capital, with high standards of quality research.
In GIADE there are 37 researchers of recognized prestige, who work in quite different themes of investigation and cover most of the areas in the investigation in management and economy.
My main line of research is economic analysis, but I have also investigated the economic environment of the business, from the strategic approach (relevant line of research GIADE).
Within the economic analysis I am specialized in the research of the political cycle of the business, the economic vote, the popularity function,...
I have also worked in public economics, especially fiscal decentralization. Related to this, my latest research belongs to the field of applied microeconometrics: happy economy. I have applied the multilevel analysis to investigate whether fiscal decentralization influences happiness.
