I am a doctoral researcher at Birmingham Law School working at the intersection of gender, law and international development through a feminist perspective. I hold a Master's degree in Applied Labour Economics for Development from Università degli Studi di Torino / Sciences Po as well as a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA).
During my undergraduate years, I worked as a research assistant at Unión Industrial Argentina, focusing on industrial and labour market policy. Upon completion of my master’s programme, I re-joined the team as a research analyst, and I had the opportunity to be part of the Argentinean Delegation as a technical advisor during the 105th International Labour Conference.
Later, I accepted a position as coordinator of the Economic Development Area of CIPPEC (the sixth most important think tank in Latin America). In this role, I worked along with Government institutions, Embassies and International Organizations (IDB, World Bank) in different fields such as industrial policies, tax matters, gender-responsive budgeting, etc. I was also part of two T20 task forces (Trade and Investment and International Cooperation in Tax Matters) and I had the opportunity to be a speaker in the T20 Africa Conference.
I was then hired as a consultant for the Research and Data Section in the Policy Division of UN Women. My main responsibility was researching and producing key inputs on gender-responsive budgeting, finance and international tax cooperation and the situation of rural women in order to assess progress, gaps and challenges in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the agency’s flagship report “Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
Finally, before starting the PhD programme, I was working as Sr Program Coordinator for Economic Policy at the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (Rutgers University) developing an advocacy strategy for adopting a new legally binding international instrument on ending violence and harassment in the world of work (ILO Convention 190).
In addition to my role as a doctoral researcher, I am currently the lead advisor on Inclusivity and Diversity at YSI/INET (Young Scholars Initiative - Institute for New Economic Thinking) and I am also an organiser of their Gender and Economics Working Group.
