About Me

I am a permanent researcher of the CONICET, Argentina’s research council and in early 2020 I finished a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre de Population et Développement (CEPED), IRD/Université de Paris, sponsored by the French Institute “Research, Innovation and Society” (IFRIS). Since I finished this postdoctoral fellowship, I became associate research of the CEPED IRD/Université de Paris and at the COSTECH lab, Université de Technologie de Compiègne. I was also recently appointed co-director of the research center “Centro de Estudios Económicos del Desarrollo” of the Universidad Nacional de San Martín. Moreover, I am the outgoing coordinator of the “States and Markets” working group of the Young Scholars Initiative of the New Economic Thinking (INET), a group that I created in 2017 and coordinated since then, and YSI/INET consultant since 2018. Among other teaching responsibilities, I teach a PhD course on New Technologies and the Future of Labor at the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes and a master’s course on Digital Capitalism and Development at the Universidad Nacional de San Martín.

I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina that I did with the support of a CONICET (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Tecnológicas) scholarship.
