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 Economics of Education and Microeconometrics on Human Capital (Education, Labor, and Health), Financial Economics and Microfoundations of Economic Development, and Economics of the Family and Household Production. Also, I study Policy Impact Evaluation for projects related to my research agenda.

_________

At this time, I am a Professor of Economics and Finance, and a Full-time Researcher, in the Faculty of Economics (FAECO) and in the School of Business (FACPYA), both at the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) in Monterrey, Mexico. 

Also, I am SNI-CONACYT National Researcher Level 1, Lead Researcher in the Academic Field "Economics of the Family and the Firm" at FAECO UANL (recognized as "Consolidated" by the Federal Ministry of Education, SEP), Lead Researcher at Centro de Investigaciones Económicas UANL, Lead Consultant at Hospital PROMIPYME UANL, Associate Researcher at Fundacion de Estudios Financieros de Mexico (FUNDEF), and member of the Advisor Group of Evaluations at the National Commission of Competition in Mexico (COFECE), among other honorary appointments.

Since October 2015, I write a biweekly open editorial column for El Financiero-Bloomberg newspaper in Monterrey, Mexico writing about economics, finance, and social matters from the academic perspective, linking theory, data, research, and reality with my opinion.

ABOUT ME

I earned my Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics at the Department of Economics in 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, the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM) and the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL).


I have also collaborated in several consulting projects for the private sector, government at different levels, NGOs, and the Organized Civil Society.

As I admired from 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.
