I'm interested in understanding the factors that impact students' educational attainment in developing contexts. In particular, my research examines the effects of peer composition in schools as well as grade promotion and retention policies.

I completed my PhD in Public Policy at the University of Chicago in 2017. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Universidad del Rosario in Colombia and Innovations for Poverty Action

Here is my CV.
