I am a research economist at the Competitiveness and Innovation unit at the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), a nonresident fellow at the Brookings Institution's Global Economy and Development program and an associate at Harvard Center for International Development.
I completed a Ph.D. in (Economic) Public Policy at Harvard University in May 2014. My doctoral dissertation focused on understanding how the barriers to the diffusion and transmission of knowledge play a role in the dynamics of the comparative advantage of nations and the international expansion of multinational corporations.
Overall, my research is focused on the intersection between international economics and the economics of productivity, including topics relevant for economic growth and development.
