I am a Postdoctoral associate based in New York University - Abu Dhabi, with a focus on political economy and applied microeconomics in developing economies, particularly in Latin America. My research interests center around economic history, economic growth, and trade.

Prior to my current position, I held roles at Universidad del Rosario, J-PAL LAC, and IADB. My educational background includes a PhD in Economics from Columbia University, as well as a M.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Universidad de los Andes.
