I am a Research Economist in the Economics Research Division at Banco de México. I have a Ph.D. in Economics from Brown University, and undergraduate degrees from Universidad del Rosario. My research uses elements from Urban and Labor economics to study the effects of minimum wages and other place-based policies.
I am currently working on:
- How city minimum wages reshape commuting and migration in US cities
- The effectiveness of hiring credits in North Carolina
- The decomposition of multidimensional poverty measures
- The impacts of household shocks on consumption in Colombia
- The measurement of job spatial mismatch in Medellín
- The effects of urban infrastructure on mismatch and labor market power
