I am a Fulbright scholar from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic where I studied Economics in undergrad. Before coming to Maxwell to pursue a joint degree in Public Administration and Economics I worked for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in projects related to poverty reduction in my home country. I am currently working for the Say Yes Foundation as a Research Assistant.
