I am an applied microeconomist who understands (or at least tries to understand) macro. My main interests are applied econometrics, impact evaluation, labor economics, fiscal policy, and international macroeconomics. I currently work as a Poverty and Equity Economist at the World Bank, I am a member of the Bolivian Academy of Economic Sciences, an affiliated professor at Universidad Privada Boliviana and I am an elected member of the Executive Committee of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association (LACEA). I hold a Ph.D. and an M.A. in Economics from Georgia State University, an Advanced Studies Certificate in International Economic Policy Research from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, and a B.A. (Licenciatura) in Economics from Universidad Católica Boliviana.
