I am assistant professor of Economic History at Carlos III University of Madrid. My research agenda centres 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, and have been known to spend many hours pondering colour schemes and typefaces.
I studied Economic History at the University of Cambridge (King’s College), where I obtained my PhD in 2020 under the supervision of Professor Gareth Austin. I also hold degrees in Economic History and in International Relations from Universidad de la República (Montevideo). I grew up in Canelones in southern Uruguay, but, unfortunately, unlike many Uruguayans, my football skills are limited to videogames.
