LUCAS GORTÁZAR 

Additionally, I have worked in other projects with the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports of Spain, the Department of Education of the Basque Government, and the consulting firm KSNET. I am a regular collaborator of the independent group Politikon and the Atlántida Project, an education innovation network in Spain.

I am a Doctoral candidate at the Economics Department of the Basque Country University under the supervision of Professor Sara de la Rica. I hold a MSc in Economics at CEMFI, a MSc from Mathematical Modeling at the University College London and a BSc in Mathematics at the Basque Country University. My doctoral dissertation addresses the measurement of skills among children and adults and its relation with several public policy aspects related to education and the labor market.

I am an independent public policy analyst working in education, skills, labor market, and social protection. I work mostly as a consultant for the Education Global Practice at the World Bank, in which I have worked in more than 10 countries in the regions of Europe and Central Asia and Middle East and North Africa. During this time, I have acquired relevant experience in policy dialogue with high-level government officials through project design and implementation as well as key analytical activities.  Moreover, I am part of the Core Team of the Basic Education Global Solutions Group (BasEd) at the World Bank, a Community of Practice of more than 150 World Bank professionals.
