I am a micro applied economist, I take statistical tools out into the world and apply them to interesting questions of individual behavior and societal outcomes. My research agenda focuses mainly on how public policies affect different health related outcomes. I am also interested in topics related to informality and crime. I obtained my PhD in Economics at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, where I lived for over five years.

As an instructor, my approach prioritizes on teaching economics as a powerful tool to solve different problems while preparing students to be successful in their future careers. My interest in economics is strongly influenced by my experience in the Ministry of Finance in Mexico, where I worked assessing the impact of fiscal policies for four years. Before that, I worked doing risk analysis for the area offering investment advice and portfolio management at Evercore Partners Mexico, a major investment bank.

On a personal level, I was born in Mexico City. I enjoy urban cycling and hiking. I also like playing piano, guitar, and ukulele.
