During my time at CID-Harvard, I worked in implementing methods of economic complexity to assess the local prospects for industrial diversification and growth. I led data analysis efforts for the development of the Subnational Atlases of Economic Complexity in Colombia and Mexico, and supported the development of the Peruvian Atlas. Moreover, co-authored economic complexity reports for Panamá, Hermosillo, Tabasco, Campeche and Baja California. Finally, I collaborated with the Workforce of the Future initiative at Brookings in analyzing subnational growth and diversification patterns of American cities from the perspective of Economic Complexity (working paper and policy report).
