profileI am a PhD Candidate in Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In the summer, I will be joining the School of Government at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests include Labor, Economic Development, Economics of Education, and Applied Econometrics.

Most of my work focuses on developing countries, with an emphasis on Latin America.
