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 extending traditional growth theories and dynamic equilibrium modeling to include economic problems that are typically found in developing countries. Among them,  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.
