Laura Maravall Buckwalter
At present, I am an assistant professor in the Economics Department at the Universidad de Alcalá. Previously, I was a lecturer at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas - ICADE Madrid and a postdoctoral researcher in the SFB 1070 “Resource Cultures” project supported by the German Science Foundation at the University of Tübingen. I hold a PhD in Economic History from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and I am an associate researcher at the Figuerola Institute of History and Social Sciences. My research interests include the study of colonial settlement (ranging from French settlers in Algeria to Vikings in Northern Europe...), agricultural economics, and long-term trends in the biological measures. I am also interested in geocomputation, spatial analysis and applied econometrics.
I currently teach Economic History at the Universidad de Alcalá. I have taught the subject of International Macroeconomics at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas and introductory Economic History at the Universidad Carlos III (in the undergraduate degrees of Economics, Business Studies, Accounting and Finances, as well as in the double degrees in Law and Economics and Law and Business). The courses have been taught in English and Spanish. I have taught the Stata Course on Regression Analysis with Historical Data and provided tutorial support in the Master and Bachelor Seminar on Development Economics and Economic History at the University of Tübingen.
