Ph.D. in Economics

Emory University


I am a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University’s Quantitative Theory & Methods (QTM) department working with Professor Clifford Carrubba. Our ongoing research projects encompass the examination of legislative behavior and roll-call vote analysis, where we integrate game theoretical and empirical methods with innovative datasets. Additionally, we are working on devising novel approaches to causally identify social interaction effects through the analysis of observational political network data.

I hold a Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Economics from Emory University, and I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in economics at Universidad EAFIT in Colombia. My primary research interests focus on the econometric analysis of network data, applied microeconomics, and American politics.
