I do multidisciplinary work for international development research. I focus on bridging research gaps in development economics, combining econometrics and machine learning methods with traditional household/phone survey and remote sensing data.
As of today, my research has been focused on the impact evaluation of big development interventions, empirical resilience measurement in development settings, and forward-looking malnutrition prediction for early warning.
Before joining the ISchool, I spent three years as a Research Analyst at the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington, D.C. I hold an M.S. in Development Economics from Cornell University, which I obtained under a Fulbright Scholarship. I also hold a B.S. in Agricultural Engineering, with honors, from the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
