I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at Fordham University in New York with research interests in macroeconomics and international finance. I study how macroeconomic policy interacts with the business cycle in emerging countries. Using empirical methods and theoretical models, I explore policies that mitigate and exacerbate the adverse effects of the cycle. For example, my latest paper studies how the dynamic path of public investment affects the business cycle in countries where the government relies heavily on oil revenue.

Before entering graduate school, I gained three years of experience in macroeconomic policy analysis in organizations such as the National Statistics Institute and the U.S. Embassy, both in Ecuador, where I assembled datasets and wrote reports.
