ICTD, Development Economics, Network Analysis


I am interested in understanding how ICTs influence economic decisions in resource constrained enviroments. My current research focuses on the welfare impacts of digital credit targeted at low income populations in Colombia. Before joining the ISchool at Berkeley I spent a couple of years working in the consulting and financial industry in South America. I have bachelor's degrees in economics and computer engineering and a master's degree in economics from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.
