Welcome! I work as an assistant professor at the Marshall School of Business of USC. I am also a CEGA faculty affiliate, an IZA Research Fellow, a Faculty Member of the Schaeffer Center for Health and Economics Policy, and a Research Fellow at the Center for Economic and Social Research at USC.
Key research topics in which I work include:
1. Exploring the effects of forced migration within hosting economies and of the role of public policies in supporting these migrants and their hosting communities.
2. Studying how firms' decisions change with economic and political shocks. 3. Examining the consequences of violence and conflict.
I hold a PhD (2015) and MA (2012) from UCLA, and a BA (2007) and MA (2008) from Universidad de los Andes.
