Summary

 

My areas of academic interest include Health Economics and the Economics of Human Capital. I have conducted research on the implications of social interactions on behavior and human capital – focusing on statistical discrimination, relative deprivation, and peer effects-, and on the economic impact of programs and policies, including parenting interventions, prenatal care, anti-tobacco campaigns, drug prevention and treatment programs, and education interventions. My projects have been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Uruguayan National Agency of Research and Innovation (ANII), the Uruguayan Ministry of Public Health (MSP), and the Latin American Development Bank (CAF).
