About

I am a Research Fellow at the Science Policy Research Unit in the University of Sussex, UK.

My research interests can be framed within development economics, with emphasis on labor markets, political economy, trade, firm behaviour, and conflict. Methodologically, I have a taste for good impact evaluations.

I have also worked for a variety of institutions. In Peru, my home country, I worked in the Research Center of Universidad del Pacifico, the Ministry of Agriculture, and maintain a collaboration with the Instituto de Finanzas Personales (Institute for Individual Finance). In the United States I worked for two years at the Innovations for Poverty Action (I am still part of their research review committee) on different projects featuring policy interventions aimed to reduce poverty, and facilitate savings mechanisms. Here in the UK I have worked as Teaching Assistant at the University of Sussex, as well as casual project associate with the Institute of Development Studies.

Almost from the end of my undergrad studies I have been involved in several projects with institutions like the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, CEPR, among others. All these projects covered a wide range of topics, which however, fall within the idea of development economics, and policy design.

Please feel free to contact me for any query.
