Bio and CV

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham's School of Economics and a CEPR Research Affiliate. I am the deputy-director  of Nottingham's  Interdisciplinary Centre for Economic and Political Research.


I grew up in Colombia, with some interludes in France. I completed all my studies in France (ENS - Ulm, PSE, and Sciences Po). After receiving a PhD in Economics from Sciences Po in 2016, 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 deep-rooted determinants of economic and political inequalities. I am particularly interested in the role of culture on economic and political outcomes. For instance, my previous work has studied the role of religion on development.  My current research agenda focuses on gender and women's empowerment.
