Bio and CV

I am a Rokos Career Development Fellow in Economics at the University of Oxford, in Pembroke College. I am associated with the Economic and Social History group  at the Department of Economics.

I was born in Colombia, where I grew up until I was 18 years old. 

I did most of my studies in France, from undergraduate to a PhD in Economics, at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris School of Economics, and Sciences Po.

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.

I have taught different topics (Macro, Econometrics, and Development) in many institutions (PSE, Harvard, Sciences-Po, and Oxford) . I enjoy teaching, especially undergraduate teaching, and always try to do it the best I can.
