Portrait of the nominees

Barcelona GSE Master's in Economics alumnae Ana Costa-Ramón and Ana Rodríguez-González have been nominated for the "Vanguardia de la Ciencia" awards promoted by La Vanguardia newspaper and Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation. They earned their nomination for their paper, It's about time: Cesarean sections and neonatal health (with M. Serra-Burriel and C. Campillo-Artero), published in the Journal of Health Economics in May 2018.

A summary of the paper was also featured last year in the Barcelona GSE Voice, our student and alumni blog.

The past four editions of the Vanguard of Science awards have included nominations for research by Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors. This is the first edition to include work by alumni of the Barcelona GSE Master's programs. Both Costa-Ramón and Rodríguez-González graduated in the Barcelona GSE Class of 2014 and are now PhD candidates in GPEFM (UPF and Barcelona GSE).
