Rubén Poblete-Cazenave

Welcome to my webpage!

I hold a PhD in Economics at University College London. I am an Applied Microeconomist working on topics in the intersection of Political Economy and Development Economics.

I use a theoretical and empirical approach to study questions on political misbehavior, abuse of power and crime, how they impact on the economy and the role that institutions play in preventing this. I use clear identification strategies as well as techniques such as machine learning and natural language processing to construct novel datasets.

I will be joining the Department of Economics at Erasmus School of Economics as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in August 2020. I will be also affiliated to the Erasmus Center for Economic and Financial Governance.
