PhD in Economics (2017), and a MSc in Development Economics (2010, awarded with distinction) from University of Sussex, United Kingdom. BA in Economics (2015) from Universidad del Pacifico, Peru.
I am a consultant at the Inter-American Development Bank, within the Strategic Development Effectiveness division, where I conduct impact evaluations.
My research interests can be framed within development economics, with emphasis on labor markets, urban economics, firm behaviour, political economy, gender, 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, and the Ministry of Agriculture. 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. In the UK, besides SPRU, I have worked as Teaching Assistant at the University of Sussex, as well as casual project associate with the Institute of Development Studies.
