About me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin.

My research interests are international economics, political economy, development, and labor economics. I attend policy-related topics such as international trade, income inequality, immigration, energy consumption, financial crises, political turnovers, and dynamics of local labor markets.

I am trained in advanced quantitative methods, such as structural econometric models, causal inference, and spatial analysis. I believe that data analysis is key to creating, evaluating, and improving public policies to enhance people's living standards.

I currently serve as a Lecturer at the Bush School of Government & Public Service at Texas A&M University, and as a Professor of Practice at the ITESM EGADE Business School. I am also a Research Associate at the Texas Census Institute.
