I am an applied microeconomist and my research focuses on the study of education markets and policies that promote equitable opportunities for human capital accumulation. I work closely with governments to help them leverage their data, existing evidence and technology, to design, evaluate and implement new education policies. These include the governments of Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic.
