I am an assistant professor in the economics area at the Faculty of Business Administration at Universidad Austral since 2015, and an invited professor in the School of Government, Universidad Torcuato Di Tella since 2007. I am also an associate researcher of the Center for Urban and Housing Policy at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, and an associate researcher of the Entrepreneurial Finance Observatory at Universidad Austral.

During 2012-2016, I completed my PhD in Business summa cum laude at IAE Business School as a Conicet-fellow, with the dissertation “Essays on the role of Networks in Entrepreneurial Finance”. Before that I obtain a masters degree (2008) and a degree in economics (2004) from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (UTDT).

I have obtained funding for my research and worked as a consultant for specialized agencies and institutes, such as the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, the Development Bank for Latin America (CAF), the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank, and national and local level governments.

As part of my teaching in UTDT, I am in charge oficina the research workshop in urban economics, where we work intensively with government, and civil society organizations in research partnerships with students towards relevant, policy-oriented research. I also lead a small research group on the impact evaluation of programs and interventions, using causal inference and econometric techniques.

In the private sector, I have done consulting in the design and development of machine learning systems and in the exploitation of big data for business intelligence, for Poincenot Technology Studio and BIND Banco Industrial, since 2017, in the fintech sector.

Since 2015 I also collaborate in the software engineering development lab of the Faculty of Engineering, Universidad Austral, where I have designed and supervised the development of research-oriented apps, and platform market prototypes.

I enjoy all aspects of research in economics, markets and organizations, and statistics/econometrics, and being involved in cross-disciplinary research. I also enjoy teaching, coding, advising, and marathon running.
