Thanks for visiting my site! 

I am a doctoral student in the Education Policy PhD program at the University of Virginia (UVA). I am passionate about understanding and improving educational systems in developing countries, especially around topics of early literacy and numeracy to address the worldwide learning crisis. 

I am a firm believer in the power of education to help people achieve fuller and more dignified livelihoods. For this, most of my work happens at the intersection of economics, impact evaluation, education, and policy analysis.

I was born and raised in Costa Rica, where I witnessed first-hand the value of education for the development of a country, but also the serious inequities that can emerge from an educational system.

Please don't hesitate to reach out, even if it's just to say hi!
