I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at CUNY, The Graduate Center. My research interests lie in the intersection of applied microeconomics and big data. I am particularly interested in predicting economic activity through data collected from social media.
I am a research fellow for Lev Manovich at the Cultural Analytics Lab as well as a research assistant for a National Science Foundation funded project studying the economic impact of high-skilled immigration in the US. I serve as Visiting Faculty at Strelka Institute for The New Normal postgraduate program. I am also a columnist for El Economista, an economic newspaper in Argentina and co-host a radio show about economics, science and art.
The proceedings of CARMA 2018 have just been released: read my paper on the use of Social Media to estimate economic activity here.
Visual Earth and On Broadway are included in 123data, a large exhibition on data visualization at the Foundation EDF in Paris.
Read our new working paper on the effects of flood insurance on the housing market (together with Francesc Ortega and Süleyman Taşpinar).
Great to share my research on estimating economic activity using social media data for CAI magazine, you can read it here (in Spanish).
Happy to announce the launch of Visual Earth, a project where we analyze 270 million tweets to study image sharing around the world in relation to economic, geographic and demographic differences.
