I am an applied economist working on education, personnel, labor and development economics.
I work as an economist in the Research Department at CAF (Development Bank of Latin America) in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. Previously, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute (2014-2016) in Florence. I hold a Ph.D in Economics from the Paris School of Economics and I graduated from the Master in Public Policy at the University of Chicago.
