WHAT I DO

I am an economist interested in linking the foundations of human behavior and the available information in datasets to develop original empirical strategies for understanding our society, from individual decisions to aggregate interactions, outcomes, welfare, and development, analyzing causes, consequences, and policy implications.

My research areas include the Economics of Education and Microeconometrics on Human Capital (Education, Labor, and Health), Financial Economics and Microfoundations of Economic Development, and Economics of Family and Household Production. Also, I study Policy Impact Evaluation for projects related to my research agenda.

ABOUT ME

I earned my Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics at the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago (2010 and 2008, respectively), my Master in Economics at El Colegio de Mexico (2001), and my B.A. in Economics at the Faculty of Economics in the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (1999).

I have professional experience in academics, government, and consulting. I previously worked in the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit for the Mexican Government (SHCP), the World Bank Group, the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago (NORC), El Banco de Mexico, El Colegio de Mexico, the University of Chicago, and the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM).

I have also collaborated on several consulting projects for the private sector, government at different levels, Non-Government Organisations, and Organized Civil Society.

ON BEING AN ECONOMIST: MY PHILOSOPHY

Two meditations on my profession as an Economist working in the Academia using the masterpiece "Revelation" or "The Watch" (1955) by Spanish surrealist painter Remedios Varo (1913-1963) and inspired by the writings of the Austrian economist, philosopher, and social scientist Friedrich A. Hayek (1899-1992) about the "curious task" of my profession in our society.
