Arturo's research interests are in development, labor, and applied econometrics (including the influence of environmental components). In his most recent work he has analyzed the medium-term effects that early-life weather shocks have on physical and cognitive development of children (joint with Marta Vicarelli). He employs weather shocks related to "El Niño Southern Oscillation" (ENSO) event to identify negative early-life conditions. The paper also evaluates the potential mitigating effects that a poverty-alleviation program (Progresa in Mexico) had against the negative weather conditions. Arturo holds a B.A. in economics from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM).
