I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at William & Mary, and a Faculty Affiliate at the Global Research Institute. I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Michigan.
My research agenda focuses mainly on the intersection of International Trade/Economic Geography and Development Economics. I am also interested in topics on Urban Economics in developing nations. I extensively use spatial data in my work in combination with structural models and applied microeconomics tools.
I am proudly from Tijuana, a large manufacturing city on the Mexico-USA border. I enjoy running and a good football match.
