About

MA and Bachellor in economics for los Andes University in Bogotá, Colombia. Currently conducting studies at the PhD level at the University of Calgary in Canada. Have been Research Assistant in Colombia's Central Bank, Consultant for the World Bank and the Colombian's Presidency and Project Associate with the institute ideas42 from the Harvard University and Innovations for Poverty Action in my country. My main research interest is on poverty and specifically on how being poor modifies individual behavior and society's behavior with respect to the poor. Additionally, I am interested in the evaluation of the existing mechanisms to eradicate poverty as well as the formulation of new mechanisms to reach the same objective. Finally, I enjoy working in the field and, specially when it comes to social objectives.
