Daniel Ramos Menchelli is a Ph.D. candidate in Business Economics at Harvard University. His research interest lies at the intersection of urban, trade, and development economics.
He is interested in using quantitative models to understand how spatial frictions shape individuals' reactions to shocks in developing countries. Specifically, he is currently studying how credit shocks affect migration decisions in Brazil across the skill distribution and how these affect spatial inequality in the long run. He is also studying how public transport investments in Medellin, Colombia, affected individuals' decisions to participate in the criminal sector and its impacts on spatial segregation.
