Hi there, I am Paula! 👋🏾👩🏾‍💻

I live in Montevideo, Uruguay, which is my hometown. I have a BSc in Economics from the Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración of the Universidad de la República, and I am an advanced candidate for an MSc in Economics from the Universidad de Montevideo. I am involved in the Uruguayan R community: both in R-Ladies, a global organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community, as co-organizer of the Montevideo chapter, and in the Uruguay R Users Group. I work as a Research Assistant at DIME, World Bank (Washington D.C.), on the project "Impact Evaluation of Resilience Interventions on Food Security and Livelihoods in South Sudan".

📌 My main topics of interest are economic gender gaps and their mechanisms, early childhood development, and scientific communication, with particular emphasis on compelling data visualizations. ️

In addition to being particularly obsessed with microeconometrics and R, I am a huge Taylor Swift fan (which can be checked out here), and I enjoy doing programming projects, drawing and painting!

️Feel free to contact me:
