Hello there

I am a PhD Economics student at University College London. I received funding from Banco de la República (Colombia) for my studies, COLFUTURO, and an award from the NBER-IFS International Network on the Value of Medical Research. My expertise is in applied microeconomics with emphasis in the economics of health and education.

I have worked as research assistant for the World Bank, the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), and Universidad del Rosario (Colombia) where I received my BA (2009) and MSc in Economics  (2011) under the Jóvenes Investigadores programme. I also have experience teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels in Universidad del Rosario and University College London.
