Graduate Student Fellow

I am a PhD student in the Department of Economics. Before coming to Santa Barbara, I worked in the Research Department at the Inter-American Development Bank, where I focused on the political economy of trustworthy behaviors in developing countries and the policy implications of non-communicable diseases. I completed my BA in Economics at Universidad de Antioquia and my MA in Economics at Universidad del Rosario in Colombia. My research interests include health, human capital, and gender economics. I am currently working on a project that investigates the effects of gender concordance on maternal health outcomes.
