Welcome to my webpage!

I work in Political and Development Economics. These are some of the questions I am trying to tackle in my current work:

  • How does violence affect local economic activity? (Mexico)
  • How does globalization affect the demand for protectionist policies? (Mexico)
  • How does a history of political violence influence the prospects of identity-based platforms today? (Spain-Catalonia)
  • Do food support programs undermine clientelism? (Venezuela)
  • How do criminal organizations influence electoral processes? (Colombia)
