Luis Baldomero-Quintana

International Trade, Economic Geography, Development, and Urban Economics

I am a doctoral candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan. I am on the job market in 2019-2020. I will attend the AEA meetings in San Diego, and the EEA EJM in Rotterdam.


My research interests are International Trade/Economic Geography, Development, and Urban Economics. In my job market paper, I analyze how infrastructure determines comparative advantage. Specifically, I develop a framework that allows researchers to analyze the impact of any road infrastructure project in the composition of the national basket of exports of a country. My model uses customs administrative data, transportation surveys, digitized maps and information on industry linkages to evaluate how road projects impact regional, sectoral and national exports.


Before my Ph.D. studies I worked at different government agencies in Mexico: the Office of the President, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.
