I am a Principal Economist at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank. My research focuses on the evaluation of public policy, with an emphasis on education, health and labor markets. I have evaluated programs oriented around improving childhood and adolescent outcomes in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, The Dominican Republic and Uruguay. In 2015, I coedited the Bank’s flagship publication: “The Early Years: Child Well-Being and the Role of Public Policy”. My work has appeared in numerous academic journals. Prior to joining the Bank, I was an Assistant Professor of Economics at University College London and previously held appointments at Universidad de San Andrés and the London School of Economics. I completed my undergraduate studies in economics at Universidad de Buenos Aires and obtained a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Oxford, Nuffield College.
