Luis C. Carvajal-Osorio

Welcome to my website!

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Vanderbilt University.

My research interests are at the intersection between development economics and the economics of education. In my research, I explore how individuals living in low- and middle-income economies make schooling decisions, the factors that influence these decisions, and the ways policies may help overcome obstacles to human capital formation.
