About me

I am currently a Research Scientist at the Texas Policy Lab at Rice University. Until 2018, I worked as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics of Universidad de los Andes.

Education: PhD in Economics, University of Pennsylvania. 2015.

Interests: Population and Family Economics, Economics of Education, Criminal Justice, Health Economics, Human Capital Formation.

Research: I am interested both in academic research and in research that directly addresses the needs of government agencies, primarily by evaluating the effects of their social programs. In both of these dimensions, my main interests lie in the intersections between the broadly defined areas listed above.
