I'm an Associate Professor at the School of Economics, Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.

I am a 2021-2022 Santo Domingo Visiting Scholar at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) at Harvard University, a member of EGAP, an invited academic at JPAL-LAC, a Faculty Affiliate at the Care and Protection of Children Learning Network, and a Research Affiliate at the Internal Displacement Research Programme at the University of London.

My research lies in the field of Development Economics. My work focuses on the analysis of conflict and forced displacement and in understanding whether they can thrust people into poverty through economic, psychological, and behavioral channels. More importantly, I'm also interested in the design and evaluation of programs that seek to mitigate some of these consequences. Recently, I have started to conduct research on the Venezuelan refugee crisis in LatinAmerica, including the analysis the impacts of current policies and the design and evaluations of interventions to promote their integration and wellbeing.

Since 2013, I have been leading the implementation and evaluation of Semillas de Apego, a community-based psychosocial model for caregivers in communities exposed to violence in Colombia. The program aims to promote maternal mental health as an outcome and as a pathway to protect early childhood development among children exposed to violence. In doing so, we aim to help families and children to reach their full potential amid traumatic and adverse environments. In partnership with the Child Trama Research Program at the University of California San Francisco, we designed the model in 2015 and conducted an RCT of the intervention in Tumaco, Colombia between 2018 and 2020. We are currently working on an at-scale pilot of the program in 5 Colombian municipalities. Read more about our work here.
