I moved to Belgium three years ago coming from Uruguay. I first pursued a master in Applied Economics at the University of Antwerp and then a Master Research in Econometrics at the Solvay School of Economics in Brussels. 

I understand economics in general and microeconomics in particular as a framework and a way to think problems as well as find solutions. In that sense, my last working paper focus on the subjective well-being of the elderly people and using Finite Mixture Models I try to understand deeper the relationship between subjective well-being and income and how this relationship affects the individual’s retirement. 

I have expertise in using Stata and in addition I program in MatLab and R.

Other topics of interest are microeconometrics, poverty and inequality, redistribution of income, gender inequality, behavioural economics and history of economic thought.
