I am an applied macro and labor economist in the Strategy and Policy Review Department of the International Monetary Fund. I have a PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
My research interests in domestic outsourcing, labor market dynamics, gender and development. I am currently studying how domestic outsourcing affects businesses’ labor responsiveness to shocks and quantifying 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.
