Most of my work has been on contemporary and historical economic development in Mexico. Currently, I am working on an education expansion in post-Revolutionary Mexico (1920-1930), which was part of a broader nation-building program. I study the effects of education on literacy and language, a measure of assimilation of indigenous groups. I also plan on studying the effects of these schools on land reform and agricultural productivity. I also plan on studying industrial policies implemented after 1950.
