About me

I am an Economics PhD candidate at the Paris School of Economics (PSE) and École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS). I am working under the supervision of Thomas Piketty, with Gabriel Zucman in my thesis committee. I’m also the National Accounts and Statistics coordinator at the World Inequality Lab (WIL).

Before joining PSE I spent 2 years as a Research Fellow at the InterAmerican Development Bank and 1 year at the World Bank, both in Washington D.C. (U.S.). I’m originally from Bahía Blanca (Argentina), where I did my BA in Universidad Nacional del Sur. I also hold a MA from Universidad de San Andrés and a MSc (Analysis and Policy in Economics) from PSE.

My research interests lie within International Political Economy and Geoconomics, with a particular focus on International Macroeconomics.
