Lecturer in Economics at  Kyushu University

Welcome to my site! I was born in the highlands of Bolivia. After studying Commercial Engineering  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.  My research interests focus  on the economics of developing countries. In particular, (1) the distribution dynamics of regional socio-economic performance; (2)  the aggregate productivity effects of structural change, production duality, and resource misallocation; and (3) the aggregate effects and sources of productivity heterogeneity across firms.
