I am an economist who likes employing the latest modelling and quantitative tools for the solution of real-world problems.
I am presently the Head of the Economics Division at OGRLAW. I worked as the Country Economist for Mexico at the Inter-American Development Bank IADB (Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo BID) and as a Research Economist at Mexico's Central Bank (Banco de México). I have also 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).
I received my PhD in economics from Boston University in 2010. My research employs quantitative theory and methods including (but not limited to): cross-section econometrics, time-series econometrics, and data science methods.
I am comfortable moving between words and numbers and I'm used to computer programming for the analysis of data.
