I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Universidad de Montevideo. My primary fields of interest are macroeconomics, numerical methods and applied econometrics. I have research experience in monetary economics, household income dynamics and their consumption and saving decisions, and how firms form their expectations.
