Juan's research interests are in the areas of macroeconomics and monetary economics, especially business cycles. His recent research focuses on:
- determinants of the sacrifice ratio in the OECD economies
- analysing the behaviour of central banks when setting interest rates
- exploring whether central banks are concerned about exchange rate stabilisation
Juan is interested in supervising PhD students in macroeconomics and monetary economics.

- Teaching activities
Juan currently teaches ECN202 Macroeconomic Principles, ECN324 Monetary Economics and ECN6660 Monetary Economics. Monetary economics studies the relationships between real economic variables (such as GDP and unemployment) and nominal variables (such as inflation and nominal interest rates).
His teaching covers both theory and applications, focusing on insights from the latest economics research as well as issues related to monetary policy. To this end, many of the models he uses are based on microeconomic foundations to ensure consistency between macro and microeconomics.
