I teach Economic History at Carlos III University of Madrid where I am junior research fellow at the Carlos III-Juan March Institute. I work on long-term comparative economic development in Latin America and Africa, with a focus on the interactions between agriculture and the environment. I also have a keen interest in data visualization design and historical GIS mapping.
I started studying Economic History at Universidad de la República (Montevideo), before moving to the University of Cambridge (King’s College and Campop), where I obtained my PhD in 2020 under the supervision of Professor Gareth Austin. I grew up in Canelones in southern Uruguay, but, unlike many Uruguayans, my football skills are unfortunately limited to videogames.
