By February 2015, our article "Does Marriage Make you Healthier?" (with Nezih Guner and Yuliya Kulikova) was elected one of the eight finalists of the Fifth La Vanguardia Science Award that recognizes excellence on research produced in Spain during a given year. It appeared on paper here and here, and online here, here, and here.

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. I was interviewed by some TV shows, including the News in Israel Channel 1 (video, in which I appear after minute 1:24), and L'Illa de Robinson, in the Catalan channel El Punt Avui TV (video).

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.
