Hi, I’m Sandra Aguilar-Gomez

Sandra Aguilar-Gomez

I'm passionate about

I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. I am also a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Global Transformation at UC San Diego. I have a Ph.D. in Sustainable Development from Columbia University.

My work focuses mainly on environmental, gender, health and development economics, often exploring the intersections between these fields. My research seeks to understand the consequences of environmental degradation and the challenges governments face in implementing policies in contexts with underlying structural inequalities or weak institutions. The geographic scope of my work spans several regions including Mexico (where I’m from), Colombia (where I work), the United States, Cambodia, and Tanzania.
