I am a National Council for Science and Technology (Conacyt) Fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. I graduated summa cum laude and as valedictorian from CIDE (Mexico) in 2010 with a B.A. in Economics. I visited the University of Chicago in the winter and spring of 2009 as an undergraduate student and received and M.A. in Economics from this university in 2012.
I am currently a third year Ph.D. student. My research interests include Family Economics, Human Capital Formation and Accumulation, and the Quantitative Study of Socio-Economic Inequality. My current research focuses in two areas: (i) formal and informal labor and credit markets; (ii) early childhood human capital formation and accumulation. The main objective of my research is to understand how market structures and investment choices determine life-cycle and cross-sectional inequality.
