About me

I am a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Guadalajara. My current research focuses on Machine Learning and NLP (natural language processing) models to study behavioral responses to crises (i.e violence produced by Urban Warfare, Terrorism), and complex social interactions; by exploring experimental measures of subjective well-being, risk perception and policy preferences.

I received a Ph.D. in Regional Science from Cornell University in 2017. My research applies concepts from behavioral economics and network theory to a broad set of topics . One side of my research interest is to measure decision making in violent scenarios by using multiple methods (e.g., experiments, surveys) to track well-being and evaluate policies.

I am participating in the 2019/2020 Economics Job Market and I will be available for interviews at the 2020 AEA meetings in San Diego.
