I am an Economist specialised in development, my work focuses on labour markets, international trade, remittances and financial integration, education, health, migration, wages, employment, inequality, and poverty. 

My research applies rigorous econometric techniques founded on sound economic theory to formulate evidence-based economic and social policy recommendations aimed at improving conditions in developing countries.

Geographically, my area of specialization covers East Asia, Latin America and the Pacific. In studying nations in these regions, I have used readily available international and national data sources, as well as created my own surveys for primary data collection in Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Puerto Rico, Vietnam and Australia. 

I have dual Australian and Ecuadorian nationalities, and have lived in Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, the US, The Netherlands and Australia. 

I completed my PhD in Economics in the Australian National University in 2008. Currently, I am an Associate Professor at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), Melbourne, Australia.
