I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics at UC Santa Barbara. I graduated from the Universidad de la República (Udelar) in Montevideo, Uruguay, with B.A and M.A in Economics. My research interests broadly include labor economics, gender, education and health. Previous research has involved the study of intergenerational transmission of preferences, and the effect of a conditional cash transfer program in family changes and transition to adulthood. My current research focuses on studying the relationship between mental health, family and labor outcomes.
