Welcome to my webpage!

I am a Lead Economist at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan in 2014.

In my research, I look at how the location and sourcing decisions of multinational corporations impact employment, trade patterns, and firms’ performance. I also study the influence of a firm's foreign network of buyers and suppliers on markups and prices within global value chains.

Fields of Interest: International Economics
