I am an economist at the OECD. I am working in the National Skills Strategies Team in the Directorate for Education and Skills performing comparative policy analysis with the objective of contributing to enhance and extend OECD’s capacity to support countries as they develop effective national skills strategies.
I am an applied microeconomist, and my main research interests are at the intersection of labour economics and economics of education. My research focuses on estimating the effect of financial aid policies on the demand and supply of higher education. I am interested in informing questions surrounding the optimal design of student aid policies and in identifying efficient mechanisms to allow financially needy students to access higher education. I am also interested in the study and design of centralized admission mechanisms to schools and universities with the aim of providing a more equitable access to education to disadvantaged students.
I am Chilean and earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Maryland, and a Bachelor and Master’s degree in Engineering from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
