About My Work
I am a first–year PhD student in public policy at the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University. I have seven years of experience in the Colombian private and public sector and in two of those years I have worked specifically in the extractive sector. Furthermore, my PhD research is directly related to the management of natural resources in Colombia, as I will explain below. Finally, my two PhD supervisors at Oxford are professors Paul Collier and Diego Sánchez-Ancochea.

The main objective of my PhD research is to study the relation oil and mineral windfalls and the quality of public investments. For that purpose I have designed a comparative case study of the Colombian subnational governments. The research strategy is framed under a mixed methods approach that will allow me to engage with my research questions both through a Large-N and Small-N study.
Areas of interest
gold, oil and natural gas, csr, governance and anti-corruption, investing, social accountability, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development

Others are still hopeful of the return of higher prices,…

Colombia is one of the 30 countries that manage a significant share of its natural resource revenues through a decentralized system. Moreover, it is the only country in Latin America that has an ad-hoc system to distribute, use and monitor these resource revenues (now a days called the General System of Royalties). The decentralization of resource revenues started in the early 1990s with the enactment of the 1991 Constitution and the law 141 of 1994 that developed it. The…


Call for papers: "The end of the commodity super-cycle and its implications for oil- and mineral-exporting countries"

Posted on March 24, 2016 at 0:18 0 Comments

The commodity super-cycle (2000-14) played a pivotal role in shaping the politics, institutions and development strategies of resource-rich developing countries. Given the current low-price context it is pertinent to explore how relevant institutions are adapting to this "new normal".  To address this key issue, Jakob Engel (University of Oxford), Rebecca Engebretsen (University of Oxford), Cornelia Staritz (Austrian Foundation for Development Research (ÖFSE)) and…
