Welcome! I am a professor of economics at the Universidad del Pacifico. My areas of research and teaching interests are development economics and political economy, and their links with behavioral economics. I obtained a Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Berkeley.
I am co-director of the Behavioral Government Lab and author of the massive open online course (MOOC) "Behavioral Economics for Effective Public Management" (in Spanish) on EdX.
I am the network co-director of LACEA-BRAIN and co-organizer of the Workshop of Experimental and Behavioral Economics of the Americas (WEBEA).

New publication: Empowering Women through Multifaceted Interventions: Long-term Evidence from a Double Matching Design will be published in the Journal of Population Economics.
The Peruvian Government will fund through Innovations for Poverty Action a census of extension service users as part of a joint project with Paul Gertler (UC Berkeley) and Manuel Barron (Universidad del Pacifico) about using behavioral economics to increase the demand for extension services.
The massive open online course (MOOC) "Behavioral Economics for Effective Public Management" (in Spanish) is available on URosarioX.
