Assistant Professor at
the Faculty of Economics, Universidad del Rosario
I obtained my PhD in Economics at University College London, funded by Banco de la República (Colombia), COLFUTURO, and an award from the NBER-IFS International Network on the Value of Medical Research. My expertise is in applied microeconomics with emphasis in the economics of health. I have experience on programme evaluation, "natural" experiments and structural models.
I have worked as research assistant for the World Bank, the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), and Universidad del Rosario (Colombia) where I received my BA (2009) and MSc in Economics (2011) under the Jóvenes Investigadores programme. I also have experience teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels in Universidad del Rosario and University College London.
