Personal profile

Research Interests

My broad areas of work are health economics and development economics. I have worked extensively on the economics of non-communicable risk factors, specifically on fiscal tools to curb tobacco, alcohol and sugar-sweetened beverages consumption. I am also interested in the socioeconomic differences of health outcomes produced by the consumption of such products. I am also interested in broader economic effects of regulations (ie, labelling, ban of advertisement, sales restrictions) on labor markets. My work also focuses in the work of health systems and their impact on equity of health outcomes and healthcare access/use. I have participated in several expert groups and commissions on how to reform health systems to improve their accountability and make them more equitable.
