I am 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 was born in Colombia, where I grew up.
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 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 work has studied the role of religion on development. My current research agenda focuses on gender and women's empowerment.
