Curriculum Vitae


I am a professor of applied economics with specialization in the long-run growth and development of low-income economies. In the twenty-first century, the developing economies must contend with challenges to sustainable growth and development from the global economy as well as from their own internal dynamics, notably their passage through the demographic transition and the requirement that they accumulate skills and creative capacity in order to continuously improve labor productivity. I am a member of the University of Chicago-based Human Capital and Economic Opportunity network.
