I am a data-centric economist. I received my PhD in economics from Boston University in 2010. My current interest is on leveraging data for businesses decision-making. The tools I employ are data science methods, econometrics, and economic theory.
I currently work at Actinver as a senior economist. But I also provide consulting services on Data Science Methods and Econometrics for businesses. I am comfortable using traditional econometrics packages, as well as programming in C-family and Python languages. I worked as the Country Economist for Mexico at the Inter-American Development Bank IADB (Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo BID), which increased my familiarity with Latin American countries. After finishing my PhD studies, I worked as a Research Economist for Mexico's Central Bank (Banco de México). I enjoy teaching and have taught various courses at Boston University, at the Anahuac University (Universidad Anáhuac), at the Iberoamerican University (Universidad Iberoamericana), and at the Technological Institute of Monterrey (Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey).
