  • Economic History

Research

I do research on three areas: 1) structural transformation and institutional capabilities with a focus on the role of agricultural sector in developing countries 2) social demography with a focus on health inequalities 3) climate change and productivity. I do a lot of quantatitive modelling, but grounded on theory drawn mostly from economic history and demography. The motivation to do research on these areas comes from past experience working as deputy minister of labor affairs of Colombia and director of social promotion in the ministry of health in Colombia. However my interest nowadays covers Latinamerica, Africa and Asia.
