Luis C. Carvajal-Osorio

Welcome to my website!

I am an Impact Evaluation Consultant at the Strategic Development Effectiveness Division (SDV) of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Vanderbilt University in May 2024.

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.
