Introduction
I am currently working as a research assistant at TU Dresden. I have finished a Master's degree at the Graduate school of International Development, Nagoya University in March 2021. My research is related to regional inequality and socio-economic development. At the moment working on classical convergence, spatial econometrics, spatial filtering, to name but a few.

Article
This paper studies the evolution of economic and social disparities across South America. By exploiting a novel multi-country subnational dataset, we evaluate the evolution of gross national income per capita (GNI) and the human development index (HDI) across 151 subnational regions over the 1990-2018 period. In particular , regional dynamics are e...
Article
We study sectoral productivity convergence through the input-output structure of the economy and its network representation. In particular, we study 106 production sectors in Japan over the 2003-2012 period and identify highly interconnected sectors using community detection algorithms. We next characterize the dynamics of these communities by eval...

The forecasting power of different methods is tested utilising crime data for 1120 inland municipalities in Colombia. Using data from 2003 to 2018, five different forecasting methods are used: ETS, ARIMA, STAR, a classical beta convergence based model and a spatial beta convergence model. First, it is shown that overall municipal crime disparities...

This study investigates the impact that a conditional cash transfer program has on homicide rates in Colombian municipalities. The causality link is exposed using synthetic control methods. This analysis is focalised in one of the most violent regions in the country, the Pacific region. The results suggest that when accounting for variance instabil...

Using a novel dataset constructed for this study, the spatio-temporal dynamics of income per capita across 34 provinces and 514 districts in Indonesia over the 2010–2017 period are analyzed. First, an exploratory spatial analysis suggests that spatial autocorrelation is only significant at the district level, and it appears to be robust from 2013 t...

Satellite nighttime light data are increasingly used for evaluating the performance of economies in which official statics are non-existent, limited, or non-comparable. In this paper, we use a novel luminosity-based measure of GDP per capita to study regional convergence and spatial dependence across 274 subnational regions of the Association of So...

This paper studies the dynamics of national and subnational inequality in Africa. We exploit a novel satellite nighttime light dataset that allows us to measure and compare regional inequality across multiple countries and subnational regions over time. Specifically, we evaluate the spatio-temporal dynamics of a luminosity-based estimate of GDP per...
Article
This paper studies regional convergence and spatial dependence of homicides and personal injuries in Colombia. In particular, through the lens of both classical and distributional convergence frameworks, two spatial scales are contrasted: municipalities and states. For both homicides and personal injuries, sigma convergence is only found at the sta...

Satellite nighttime light data are increasingly used for evaluating the performance of economies in which official statics are non‐existent, limited, or non‐comparable. In this paper, we use a novel luminosity‐based measure of GDP per capita to study regional convergence and spatial dependence across 274 subnational regions of the Association of So...
