Here you'll find information about students working in their thesis under my supervision I'm always interested in talking with potential students
Flor Elisa Hernández Reyes (MSc in Economics, UNAM) Graduated with honors (2021) The empirical analysis of inequality of opportunity centers on the correlation between social circumstances beyond individual control and well-being outcomes, both unobserved concepts. However, hardly ever these analyses adjust for the error of the measurement in each construct. The aim of this research is to correct for attenuation the quantification of the level of inequality of opportunity in Mexico based on reliability theory.
Marco A. Romero Navarro (BSc in Economics, UNAM) How is the distribution of productivities affecting the labor market in Mexico? This research looks at different counterfactual distributions of hourly labor income to estimate the effect of the production structure on labor market inequalities.
Omar Ruiz Gutiérrez (MSc in Economics, UNAM) Graduated with honors (2021) Highly educated population in Mexico face decreasing returns to education at least since 2006. While some of the hypotheses behind this phenomenon have started to point towards the demand side of the labor market, a detail analysis across different occupational insertions, age groups, and geographic areas has been lacking. This research aims to fill this gap.
Cosijoeza Zárate Guzmán (MSc in Economics, UNAM) The empirical analysis of the economic consequences of teenage pregnancy is quite challenging, mainly due to the lack of proper longitudinal data. In this research we exploit an Accelerated Longitudinal Design of the Mexican Family Life Survey (MxFLS) to gain further knowledge into this social phenomenon in Mexico.
