Welcome to my website!

I am a researcher at Fedesarrollo Think Tank.

I was previously at the University of Oxford (Department of Economics) as a postdoctoral scholar, and studied my Ph.D. at the University of Munich -LMU.

My broad research interests are in the fields of Political Economy, Development Economics and Economic History.

In particular, I am interested in the impact of institutions on human behavior, and the way they interact to persist over time. My research examines political economy determinants of social capital, social conflict and de facto institutions, valuing insights from history.
