“Science is measurement” William Thomson, 1886

I am Associate Professor of the Department of Economics at Universidad del Valle (Colombia) and a Research Associate at the Riskcenter of the University of Barcelona (Spain). I am also leader of the research group in Quantitative Finance. I have been a visiting scholar in the Swiss Institute of Banking and Finance of the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), and I have worked for the Central Bank of Colombia and the Colombian National Planning Agency.

My research interests are: financial markets (with a focus on international finance, empirical asset pricing and banks), energy markets (particularly electricity and oil) and risk analysis (both in insurance and stock markets).
