In 2015, our article "Does Marriage Make you Healthier?" (with Nezih Guner and Yuliya Kulikova) draw some attention from the media. The Economist featured this post and this podcast on the blog The Economist explains. Several Spanish media featured articles on it, including, among others, Antena3, Yahoo, 20 minutos, La Vanguardia, El Mundo, 324-TV3, ABC, El Periódico, La Razón, El Economista La Voz de Galicia, KISSfm, Radio Intereconomía, El Correo, El Diario Vasco, El Faro de Vigo, Libertad Digital, Heraldo de Aragón, El Diario Montañés, Hola!, La Verdad Murcia, Diario de Navarra, Ideal de Andalucía, El Norte de Castilla, Hoy Diario de Extremadura, Ara, Diario Sur, Las Provincias, Canarias7, Segre, Diario de Córdoba,, Diario La Rioja, as well as several newspapers in their printed versions, which are recollected in this file.

By the end of 2014, the Barcelona GSE posted this video to promote its new logo in which I appear a few seconds starting from 0:14.

In 2014, in a series of articles on the situation of the Spanish university, El País featured an article here and here reviewing my experience in the Economics Job Market a few years before, to illustrate how it works.

In 2012, Hernán Ruffo, Manuel J. García Santana, and I were granted our PhDs in the Opening Ceremony of the academic course in Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo. This was mentioned in La Vanguardia, La Razón, and 20 minutos here, here, and here (see a picture here).

In 2010, Diario de Mallorca published here the opinion of several former distinguished students, including myself, on the poor performance of Spain in the PISA report.

In 2009, Diario de Mallorca published here and here a feature on the careers of several former students at the Universitat de les Illes Balears that had been distinguished with the Prize of the Best Student awarding a BA in a given field in the preceding years, including myself.

In 2004, while I was a student, Jose Luis Groizard and I were awarded the Premi de Recerca sobre Cooperació Internacional al Desenvolupament by the Govern de les Illes Balears, which was briefly mentioned in Diario de Mallorca, Ultima Hora, and Diari de Balears here, here, and here.
