Personal profile

Career

Since 2010 I teach at Bolivia’s Catholic University (Business School) and I am an associate researcher at the Socioeconomic Institute (IISEC) that is part of the same institution. My fields of interest are international macroeconomics, fiscal decentralization and economic development. I majored in Industrial Engineering and obtained my master’s degree in Applied Economics from Georgetown University (summa cum laude). I also took an executive program at Harvard University (Macroeconomic Policy) and another one at the Local Autonomy College (Local Governance) in Tokyo. Before joining the academia I gained fifteen years of work experience, mostly in international development. My dissertation at Tilburg focuses on financial dedollarization in Latin-American countries (Bolivia, Uruguay, Peru and Paraguay).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
