I am a Ph.D student at the Economics Department. I obtained a BA and a MA in Economics from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. Before joining University of Notre Dame, I worked at the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. During my tenure at these institutions, I participated in several research projects regarding Economic Development and Macroeconomic Stability in Latin America and the Caribbean. My research interests are international finance and monetary policy in Emerging Countries. In these areas, I am mostly interested in the study of extreme events. In particular, Financial Bubbles and Sudden Stops.
