WHAT I DO
I am an economist interested in linking the foundations of human behavior and the available information in datasets to develop original empirical strategies for understanding our society, from individual decisions to aggregate interactions, outcomes, welfare, and development, analyzing causes, consequences, and policy implications.
My research areas include the Economics of Education and Microeconometrics on Human Capital (Education, Labor, and Health), Financial Economics and Microfoundations of Economic Development, and Economics of Family and Household Production. Also, I study Policy Impact Evaluation for projects related to my research agenda.
I earned my Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics at the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago (2010 and 2008, respectively), my Master in Economics at El Colegio de Mexico (2001), and my B.A. in Economics at the Faculty of Economics in the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (1999).
I have professional experience in academics, government, and consulting. I previously worked in the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit for the Mexican Government (SHCP), the World Bank Group, the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago (NORC), El Banco de Mexico, El Colegio de Mexico, the University of Chicago, and the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM).
I have also collaborated on several consulting projects for the private sector, government at different levels, Non-Government Organisations, and Organized Civil Society.
Since August 2015, I have been a Professor of Economics and Finance at the Facultad de Economía (FAECO) at Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.
I am a CONACYT-SNI National Researcher (Level 1), Fellow of the Mexican Academy of Sciences (AMC), and Leader of the Academic Field "Economics of Family and the Firm" recognized as "consolidated" by the National Ministry of Education (SEP), among other honorary appointments and invitations.
Besides my work as Professor and Researcher, since October 2015, I have written a biweekly open editorial column for El Financiero-Bloomberg newspaper, and since January 2022, I have written Economicamente Social, an open editorial column in Letras de Poder, a monthly magazine. I write about economics, finance, and social matters from an academic perspective, linking theory, data, research, and reality with my opinion.
My Books, Papers, Book Chapters, and Technical Reports.
I lecture in the Faculty of Economics, UANL, and in the School of Business, UANL, for the College, the Masters (in Economics and Finance), several Diplomates, and the Doctorate in Economics Sciences.
As I admired on my mentors during my student life, I enjoy sharing what I have learned and teaching what I strongly believe is useful for understanding our complex society one issue at a time: Economics.
I have collaborated on diverse projects providing analytical and research services on External Advice, Program Design, Policy Impact Evaluations, and Technical Analysis for the Academics, International, Public, Private, NGOs, and OCSs sectors.
Some of these Technical Reports might be available for unrestricted consulting.

ON BEING AN ECONOMIST: MY PHILOSOPHY
Two meditations on my profession as an Economist working in the Academia using the masterpiece "Revelation" or "The Watch" (1955) by Spanish surrealist painter Remedios Varo (1913-1963) and inspired by the writings of the Austrian economist, philosopher, and social scientist Friedrich A. Hayek (1899-1992) about the "curious task" of my profession in our society.
