Assistant Professor


I am an economist with interests in development economics and sustainability. Prior to joining the School for Cross-faculty Studies at the University of Warwick in September 2022, I was a Teaching Fellow in Economics at the Leeds University Business School's Economics Department, a position which I held for three years.

I hold a MSc and a PhD in Economics from the University of Leeds. Before starting my studies in the UK, I worked for five years at the National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL) in Mexico, where I contributed to the development and computation of official multidimensional poverty measurements as well as a labour-income-based poverty index. During this time, I also worked as an external consultant for national and international organisations.



My research interests are related to economic development. I am particularly interested in the analysis of poverty and inequality, public policy evaluation, microeconomic analysis and applied econometrics.
