About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the School of Economics and Management at Tilburg University and in Kühne Logistics University. I investigate grocery retail operations in emerging markets, through field experiments and econometric techniques. I hold a Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a Master of Science (Diplôme d'Ingénieur) from the Université de Technologie de Troyes and a Bachelor of Engineering from Tecnológico de Monterrey. I am also a lecturer of causal inference at the GCLOG program at MIT.
