Ph.D. Candidate in Economics

Boston University


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Boston University.

I am an applied microeconomist working in development, labor, and political economy. Recent areas of research include how infrastructure affects informality, the role of automation in reducing occupational segregation in the US, and the effects of the disclosure of corruption cases on citizens' compliance with the law.

Before joining Boston University, I was a Research Fellow at the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB).
