I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the department of Economics at Princeton. My research interests are in the fields of Applied Microeconomics, Behavioral Economics, Development, and Political Economy.
My current research projects are aimed at furthering our understanding of the impact of social norms on tax compliance, as well as optimal tax enforcement when social norms may affect evasion decisions.
More generally, I'm interested on the way that economic outcomes are shaped by the interaction between formal and informal institutions. I use both a theoretical and an empirical approach to address these questions.
Prior to coming to Princeton, I worked for several years in Peru at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, and the Grupo de Análisis para el Desarrollo (GRADE). I also hold a Master's degree in Public Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School
