University of Leeds
Jaime Nieto Vega has a Degree in Economics from the Complutense University of Madrid, a Masters in Regional and Local Development from the University of Valladolid and a Doctorate in Economics from the University of Valladolid.
His first professional experiences were developed in the third sector, particularly in Economistas sin Fronteras, in Madrid. After a hiatus, he returned years later to the third sector with Fundación Tomillo. In both jobs, he provided free support to migrants and people in a situation of self-employment confinement.
Since 2016 he has been working as a researcher at the University of Valladolid; and in 2018, he combined this work with a long and fruitful stay at the University of Leeds. He currently works part-time at both centers, contributing his efforts on researching the interactions between the economy and the environment, specifically in relation to energy resources.
