Welcome to my personal website! I am in charge of CAF's economic and social research team. Before, I worked for more than eight years at the OECD. I was as a senior adviser at the Office of the OECD Chief Economist, advising on global macro and G20 issues. Before, I was the head of the Colombia and Greece unit at the OECD Economics Department, leading the team in charge of conducting the economic survey, macroeconomic forecasts and structural surveillance of both countries. Earlier, I held several positions in the OECD Development Centre, including head of the Latin America and Caribbean unit for three years, responsible for producing the OECD’s flagship publication on Latin America and several country studies. Previous to joining the OECD in 2008, I worked at the Inter-American Development Bank and the European Central Bank as a research economist on emerging markets. My research and policy papers have been published in numerous academic journals, books and conference volumes. I hold a PhD and MA in economics from the University of Maryland - College Park, with specialization in international macroeconomics and finance as well as econometrics. My fields of interest also include fiscal policy, economic growth and productivity. I completed my undergraduate economic studies at the University of the Republic of Uruguay.
