Welcome to my website!
I am an applied economist trained at PUCP (BA), Oxford University (MSc) and UC Berkeley (PhD). I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Universidad del Pacifico.
Before my PhD I worked as an RA or analyst at GRADE, CISEPA (Peru); CRISE (UK); EDI (Tanzania); and IFPRI (USA).
My research is mostly centered around three broad topics:
Cutting across these topics, I investigate gender issues and behavioral biases – in particular those that are exacerbated by the weaker institutions of developing regions.
