I am an Economist at the Poverty and Equity Global Practice at the World Bank. Since I joined the World Bank in 2012, I have been working in Peru, Bolivia, and Central America.
hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Duke University. My research interests include issues on international migration, households’ risk management, and global health. My most recent research focuses on understanding the consequences of natural disasters on households’ well-being in Guatemala and the role of food consumed out of the home for poverty measurement. I have also written and published work about the extent to which households can cope with health shocks in the absence of formal insurance in Indonesia and the impact of conditional cash transfer programs on child nutrition in Mexico. 
During my Ph.D. studies, I participated in the design and implementation of the third round of the Mexican Family Life Survey. Before my graduate studies, I worked at the Research Department at the Inter-American Development Bank and the Ministry of Finance of the Province of Buenos Aires in Argentina.
