Welcome to my website!

I am an economist working at the Consejo Monetario Centroamericano and at the Economics Department and the Institute for Economics Research of the University of Costa Rica.

I graduated as PhD in Development Economics at The Ohio State University in 2015.  My dissertation work, directed by Dr. Mario J. Miranda, was focused on food security, particularly on the determinants of global food price volatility, and on the role of  grain buffer stocks as a tool to hedge against price volatility.

My areas of interest include development economics, macroeconomics, computational economics, econometrics, and income inequality.

In this website you can find my CV, some of my research work and presentations, as well as some code that might be useful to fellow researchers.
