ABOUT ME

I am an Assistant Professor and a Faculty Fellow at the Navarra Center for International Development at the University of Navarra.

My primary fields of interest are Development Economics, Applied Microeconomics and Policy Evaluation.

My current work focuses on the effect of providing gender-targeted cash transfers on household outcomes and especially on human capital investment. I am also interested on the effect of information and community ingagement on the management of natural resources in Africa.
