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 Economics of Education and Microeconometrics on Human Capital (Education, Labor, and Health), Financial Economics and Microfoundations of Economic Development, and Economics of the Family and Household Production. Also, I study Policy Impact Evaluation for projects related to my research agenda.
At this time, I am a Professor of Economics and Finance, and a Full-time Researcher, in the Faculty of Economics (FAECO) and in the School of Business (FACPYA), both at the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) in Monterrey, Mexico.
Also, I am an SNI-CONACYT National Researcher Level 1, Fellow Member of the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias (AMC), Lead Researcher of the Academic Field "Economics of the Family and the Firm" at FAECO UANL (recognized as "Consolidated" by the Secretaría de Educación Pública, SEP), Lead Researcher at Centro de Investigaciones Económicas UANL, Lead Consultant at Hospital PROMIPYME UANL, Associate Researcher at Fundacion de Estudios Financieros de Mexico (FUNDEF), and member of the Advisor Group of Evaluations at the Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica (COFECE) in México, among other honorary appointments.
Since October 2015, I have written a biweekly open editorial column for El Financiero-Bloomberg newspaper in Monterrey, Mexico writing about economics, finance, and social matters from the academic perspective, linking theory, data, research, and reality with my opinion. Also, since January 2022 I write Economicamente Social, an Op-Ed column in Letras de Poder, a monthly magazine.
