Rubén Poblete-Cazenave

Welcome to my webpage!

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at University College London. I am an Applied Microeconomist working on topics in 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 am a Job Market candidate and will be available for interviews at:

  • 2019 EEA meeting in Rotterdam,
  • 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego.
