Since April 2010, I am working at the World Bank. I recently joined the Poverty, Equity and Gender Unit, of the Latin America and the Caribbean Region.

My background is in the fields of microeconomic theory, welfare economics and development, with strong interests in concepts of well-being and in measures of poverty and inequality. I have worked on the impact of economic inequality on children's achievement at school, through the effect of social socioeconomic segregation, and on the bounding on test scores estimates when selection is present. In the past couple of years I focused on issues related to inequality of opportunities, and economic mobility in Latin America and Russia.
