Introduction
MSc in Economics and Public Policy. Interested in understanding the underlying mechanisms through which poverty and gender inequalities influence early childhood development, particularly of young children living in low- and middle-income countries. Currently, I investigate how family-school partnerships and gender stereotypes, roles, and expectations shape interactions between children and their caregivers, as well as children’s learning environments.

We examined whether within‐child changes in hours in...

Evidence supporting these models is scarce in low‐ and middle‐income countries (LMICs). This study tests the relations between maternal knowledge, stimulation, and child development in a Colombian sampl...
