I am an Economist at the International Monetary Fund. I have a PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

 I am an applied macro and labor economist with research interests in domestic outsourcing, labor market dynamics, gender and development.

My current research focuses on how domestic outsourcing affects businesses’ labor responsiveness to shocks and quantifies how the creation and destruction of jobs filled by outsourced workers bias the measurement of the aggregate job reallocation rate.

Prior to graduate school, I worked at the World Bank and the Colombian National Planning Department.
