I'm a PhD candidate in Economics at Stanford University and a 2021 Haley-ShawKing Center Dissertation Fellow

I am an applied microeconomist and my research focuses on the study of firms and education policy, with special emphasis on Latin America. I have research projects in Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Chile, and Peru.

I’m on the academic job market this year, and I’ll be available for interviews at the AEA 2022 meetings in Boston. If you're interested in talking about my work, or yours, get in touch! You can reach me at sotero@stanford.edu
