My research centers on Applied Microeconomics, Economic Development, and Applied Econometrics. I am broadly interested in understanding individual and collective economic behavior in contexts with imperfect protection to property rights. I do applied theory as well as empirical work. The main lines of research in which I focus my work are:
- The impact of violence and crime on education.
- Optimal allocation of policing resources.
- The political economy of public safety.
- Accumulation of human capital and criminal skills.
- Models of conflict.
