Although research plays a major role in my career goals, I am also passionate about teaching and mentoring. My method is based on mutual respect, recognition and learning. During my lectures I emphasize applied examples to motivate additional questions.
I have served twice as lead instructor for Cornell graduate student consultancy groups or SMART (Student Multidisciplinary Applied Research Team) that under my supervision, worked on the field with smallholders’ organizations. In addition, at Cornell I served as teacher assistant (TA) for the undergraduate course in Resource Economics with Pr. Jon Conrad. During my master at University of Pittsburgh Pr. Sera Linardi, identified my passion for teaching, and invited me to become teacher assistant for graduate courses in Quantitative Methods II and Game Theory.
Outside the US, and while working at the Central Bank of Colombia, I served as Adjunct Professor for the top economic departments in the country. I taught Introduction to Economics, Macroeconomics, and Colombian Economic Policy; this last course along with Dr. Miguel Urrutia, former Chairman of the Central Bank. My students recognize me as someone approachable and open to questions.
