Associate Professor

Universidad de los Andes, Colombia



Max Weber alumnus

Department of Economics

Cohort(s): 2011/2012

Ph.D. Institution

Stanford University, United States


My research interests lie within game theory and my main focus to date has been on models of interaction in networks and their applications. Although I am an economist by training, my research has benefited significantly from the insights of other social sciences, especially sociology and psychology, and I wish to preserve and enhance this interdisciplinary perspective.

I will receive a Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University in June 2011; my thesis supervisors are Matthew Jackson, Muriel Niederle and Giacomo De Giorgi. I hold a B.Sc. (Mathematics and Economics) from the LSE and an M.Sc. in Mathematics and the Foundations of Computer Science from Oxford University.

I was born and have lived most of my life in Bogotá, Colombia and, geographically speaking, I identify most with the northern Andes high plateaus.
