My primary research interests are in empirical corporate finance and financial intermediation. My current research focuses on the financial and real effects of bank transaction taxes, and on the impact of credit rating policies on the investment and financing decisions of firms.

I earned my PhD in Finance from Boston College in May, 2014. I have a Master of Science in Finance also from Boston College (2009) and a BS in Economics from EAFIT University in Medellin, Colombia (2004).

Before my PhD I worked for five years in the financial industry in Colombia. First in Valores Bancolombia, Colombia's largest brokerage firm, as a Quantitative Analyst in the Economic Research Department, and then in Bancolombia, Colombia's largest bank, as a Project Manager in the Derivatives and Risk Management division.
