Academic Biography

Mauricio graduated from his Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University in May of 2015. Before that, he studied a joint-degree in Economics and Political Science at ITAM in Mexico City. He is interested in when and why individuals act to benefit others in contexts such as donations, child-rearing and social protests. He studies these questions through the use of experimental methods, both in the lab and in collaboration with his NGO partner in Mexico. He is currently a Lecturer at the Department of Government, where he teaches a graduate course in research methods. He is also a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Behavioral Insights Group.

Personal Biography

Mauricio’s early days were split between humongous Mexico City and tiny Brownsville, Texas. Coming to terms with these extremes may explain why he splits his time between scholarship and salsa. He continues to travel to Mexico often to tend to his experiments sprinkled around the country.
