About me

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Stony Brook University (SBU), where I have also lectured, as the lead instructor, undergraduate level courses such as Introduction to Economics, Public Finance, and Game Theory.

My research interests lie in the fields of Industrial Organization, Applied Microeconomics, and Game Theory. I am focused in using game theoretical tools to explain, predict and model the strategic behavior of firms that operate and compete in network industries, such as telecommunications. Thus, my research aims to combine theoretical development with predictions that are empirically testable using consumer microdata and data drawn at the firm or industry level.

I received an MA degree in Applied Economics from the University of Oklahoma in 2012, funded by the Fulbright Fellowship Program. In 2005, I received an MA degree in International Trade and Economic Cooperation from Kyung Hee University (South Korea), funded by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).

From 2006 to 2010, I worked in the Department of Economic Studies of the National Institute for Competition Defense and Intellectual Property Protection (Instituto Nacional de Defensa de la Competencia y Protection de la Propiedad Intelectual - INDECOPI). Previously, from 2005 to 2006, I worked as a Research Assistant of the Instituto de Estudios Peruanos (IEP) and as an Economics Adviser of the Secretariat of Communications of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications of Peru.
