I am a lecturer in Economics at the University of
Nottingham's School of Economics.
I was born in Colombia, where I grew up until I was 18 years old.
I received a PhD in Economics from Sciences Po, Paris in 2016. After
that I was a Career Development Fellow at the University of Oxford (Pembroke College), where I was attached to the Economic and Social History Research group.
My work aims at understanding the long-term determinants of spatial inequality using a quantitative historical perspective. I am particularly interested in the role of culture —especially religion— on development, but this is not my only subject.
