I am an economist in the Fiscal and Municipal Management (FMM) Division at the Inter-American Development Bank, and a Research Affiliate with the Office of Tax Policy Research of the University of Michigan.

My primary fields of interest are public finance and development economics, but I am also interested in topics related to international finance and environmental economics.

My current research agenda focuses on public finance issues in developing economies, with a particular interest in the use of fiscal policy as a development tool.
