I am a PhD student in Economics at Brown. I obtained my MA at CEMFI (Spain) and my BA at Universidad de San Andres (Argentina). My research interests lie within development, labor and political economics. In the past I have worked on the effect of labor unions on inequality and on what drives congressmen to exert effort in legislative activities. Currently, I am exploring research ideas around the expansion of Protestantism in Latin America, as well as the deep-rooted interaction between the disease environment and the development of patience (character trait) around the world.
