I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Public Policy at Tecnológico de Monterrey, School of Government and Public Transformation (Mexico). In my work, I use qualitative and quantitative methods to answer why humans waste food. In other words, I do surveys, lab experiments, and focus groups for analyzing how and why people behave in an unfriendly environment manner. I have used these methods for studying other pressing concerns in Mexico, such as for analyzing overweight and obesity.

Before beginning my Ph.D. studies, I did an MSc in Economics from Tilburg University (the Netherlands) with a specialization in Behavioral Economics, and a BA in Economics from Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico). Since 2019, I am also a student of psychology at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).

Work

Academic

My most recent focus is on pro-environmental behaviors, i.e., food waste. In general, I have experience in both environmental and health issues. Always with a focus on the individual and her actions.

Professional

I have worked mainly at a federal level in Mexico and abroad with public and private organizations in various fields that include, but are not limited to, evaluation and monitoring of policies, experimental and behavioral economics, design thinking, risk management, and finance.

Consulting

I have assisted institutions with projects related to design thinking, behavioral interventions, and policy analysis.
