Ph.D.  in International Development

Welcome to my site! I was born in the highlands of Bolivia. After studying Business-Economics in Bolivia and Chile, I worked as a consultant for Pro-Mujer International, The World Bank, DANIDA, and JICA.  I have a M.A. and  a Ph.D.  In International Development from Nagoya University. I currently work as a lecturer and researcher at Kyushu University. My research interests focus  on the macroeconomics of developing countries. In particular,  the coexistence of dual structures of production; the excessive productivity heterogeneity across firms; and the inefficiencies in the allocation of resources under such duality and excessive heterogeneity.
