Borja Petit


I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at CUNEF.

Before joining CUNEF in September 2020, I worked as an Analyst at AIREF, the Spanish Authority for Fiscal Responsability.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from CEMFI in July 2019, under the supervision of Profs. Nezih Guner and Josep Pijoan-Mas.

I'm a macroeconomist working on family economics, inequality and fiscal policy. More in particular, I study how public policies impact inequality and intergenerational mobility through their effects on family choices (fertility, investments in children's human capital, etc.) using structural models with heterogeneous agents.

I'm also interested in the macroeconomic implications of frictions such as firing costs and price stickiness, with a particular focus on aggregate productivity and policy effectiveness.
