I am an Economist at the Federal Reserve Board, within the Trade and Quantitative Studies section.
My research interests are in industrial organization, spatial economics, and environmental economics.
My policy work at the Board is on energy commodity markets, focusing on the near-term impact of current geopolitical developments for the oil and gas industry, as well as longer-term implications for the clean energy transition.
I received my PhD in Economics from New York University in 2021.

"The Political Economy of Migration Restrictions under Apartheid" with Leonard Le Roux (Sciences Po)
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but grew up mostly in South Africa and Trinidad & Tobago. At 18, I returned to Argentina and enrolled at Di Tella, where I first learned economics. After graduating, I spent a few years working in the tech industry before deciding to pursue an academic research career. I was very lucky to be able to come to the United States, and in particular to be accepted for graduate school at NYU, where I completed my PhD in 2021.
