Why did you become a member of the International Atlantic Economic Society?

It started several years ago with a great location for a Conference (Boston) but the collegiality and camaraderie of both members and staff, strong papers and solid reputation of the institution; these are some of the great the features of the IAES and why I’m a member.

What do you find most enjoyable about your International Atlantic Economic Society Membership?:

In addition to discount on fees and networking, access to two reputable journals is important to me.

What types of projects/research are you working on and what sparked your interest?

I am currently working on two areas: Pedagogy and Regional Development in Latin America and the Caribbean. Pedagogy, the impact of technology in the classroom in particular, is at the heart of what we do as college professors. In terms of Regional Development, I’m always curious about the impact of policies on economic development. My current project analyses the impact of tax incentives on entrepreneurship in Puerto Rico. 

What advice would you give to someone who is considering entering your line of work or field of study?

Conducting research and teaching in subjects that you like is the best job to have. So be bold, passionate and have fun!

Favorite hobby:

Reading, the outdoors and working-out.
