Teaching Activities


My teaching is focused on the field of public economics and taxation, but I have also instructed courses in econometrics, introduction to economics, Spanish economy and regional economics. My teaching performance has been positively assessed by the Docentia Program. Since 2014, I am the Director of the Chair of Family Business of the University of Vigo.

I have been an invited lecturer by the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) and the University of Rennes I (France) and a member of the external evaluation committee of the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics in 2015.

I am an associate editor of e-publica, an electronic journal on the teaching of public economics covered by Econlit, Latindex, DICE, PROQUEST, RESH, and EBSCO Publishing. I am also a member of the teaching innovation group on public economics and taxation of the University of Vigo.

As a senior academic at the University of Vigo, I have been the Director of the Department of Applied Economics (2011-2013), the first Chairman of the Water Campus, and a member of the scientific committee of the University of Vigo Doctoral Program in Economics (2013-2014). Currently, I am a member of the academic committee of the Water Campus Doctoral Program (2018- )

My recent teaching publications include an article on the experience of our courses on taxation, another article on the use of Microsoft Excel for tax management and a handbook on the Galician economy. Furthermore, I have directed a number of summer courses and extra-curricular university activities in collaboration with (among others) Universidad Intermacional Menendez Pelayo, CCOO, Escola Galega de Administración Pública, Consello Galego de Relacións Laborais, Consello Económico e Social de Galicia, Círculo de Empresarios de Galicia and La Voz de Galicia. Some of them have evolved into books: La economía de Ourense a debate; La formación para el empleo: situación actual y perspectivas de futuro; Ética pública: desafíos e propostas; A convivencia plural: dereitos e políticas de xustiza; Presente e futuro do municipalismo galego.
