Diana Contreras Suarez's Profile Picture
Dr

Diana Contreras Suarez

 

I like my research to be driven by questions on how to improve the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged populations. My work focuses on understanding human capital formation throughout the life cycle.

I use applied econometrics techniques to look into those questions and most of my expertise is in developing countries.
